Machine Vibration: Measurement and Analysis

Machinery Vibration: Measurement and Analysis will show you how to use state-of-the-art instrumentation, transducers and fast Fourier transform (FFT) spectrum analyzers to monitor machine conditions using the vibration signature. This expert sourcebook includes:

  • Case histories that illustrate strategies for solving machinery problems, from unbalances and misalignments to vortex flow and turbulence.
  • A diagnostic chart for assessing the severity of vibration.
  • An overview of technology used in "trending" machine performance.
  • Guidelines for setting up a vibration monitoring system.
  • Many illustrations throughout the book.

Whether you're a plant or mechanical engineer, maintenance engineer, facility manager, mechanic, or technician, this excellent book will enable you to troubleshoot mechanical problems and improve machinery performance.
