Participants use numerous case studies to diagnose and fix problems with real machines. Case histories highlighting vibration documentation, analysis, and machine malfunction corrective techniques are presented throughout the course.
- Engineers seeking to advance their machinery vibration diagnostics skills
- Engineers who design, test, and maintain rotating machinery
- Academic researchers and professors involved in rotor dynamics
- Postgraduate engineering participants
Duration: 3 to 5 days
- Use rotor modeling, actual machine data and case histories.
- Recognize, explain, and account for effects of more complex rotor dynamics interaction of modes, mode shapes, thermal changes, bearing design, torsional vibration, and structural modes.
- Explain critical speed and its impacts on resonances and natural frequencies.
- Discuss mode shape, undamped/damped modes, and effects of bearing characteristics.
