The Instructor

The instructor is Victor Wowk, P.E., the president of Machine Dynamics, Inc. His company specializes in solving vibration problems on machinery and he regularly applies the technologies that he teaches. Mr. Wowk is the author of the following textbooks published by McGraw-Hill: Machinery Vibration: Measurement and Analysis, 1991, Machinery Vibration: Balancing, 1995, and Machinery Vibration: Alignment, 2000.

Guest speakers, who are experts in their field, may present special topics.

Seminar Content

Each student will receive the applicable textbooks and a certificate with the appropriate Continuing Education Units (CEU) annotated. Additional handouts, materials of lists of supplies, commercial brochures, and article reprints will be available to students.

These courses are completely non-commercial except to provide knowledge. Machine Dynamics is not affiliated with any vibration analysis instruments, but we believe that one reason for attending seminars is to discover what is available on the market and where to buy it. This information will be provided, along with unbiased discussions of what is a better choice for certain applications.

Seminar Schedule

The seminars will be scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., lunch is on your own from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. The format will be lecture/discussion with overhead transparencies, and demonstrations on tabletop machines. Hands-on practice with tabletop machines will be part of the balancing and alignment workshops. You are welcome to bring your own instruments for classroom practice. FFT spectrums will be projected on an overhead display for the vibration analysis courses.

Local Accommodations & Restaurants
