About this title

Specific, practical guidance for every individual involved with solving process machinery problems. The single source reference for explanations of fundamental machinery behavior, static and dynamic measurements, plus data acquisition, processing and interpretation. A variety of lateral and torsional analytical procedures, and physical tests are presented and discussed.

Successful machinery analysis requires the diagnostician to understand the mechanical equipment, the measurement of vibration and other parameters, plus the underlying physical principles that govern the rotor dynamics. This book covers all three areas, presenting explanations of machinery characteristics, and the use of vibration measurements and analytical models. It covers on exceptionally broad range of process machinery, including industrial steam, gas and hydro turbines, centrifugal and reciprocating compressors, expanders, gear boxes, pumps, motors, blowers plus vertical and horizontal generators and drives.
