A Technical Approach To The Maintenance And Overhaul Of Gas Turbines.
Conventional approaches to maintenance of large machines are effective, but they often have problems in the areas of record keeping, access to knowledge gained from previous experience, lack of intimate knowledge of individual machines' operating characteristics, and availability of expert advice for emergency repairs. The author's alternative approach of an in-house, multidisciplinary maintenance team is discussed. This approach includes the specialty areas of lubrication, dynamic balancing and vibration, optical alignment, metallurgical engineering, welding technology, non-destructive testing, mechanical analysis, and mechanical engineering.
