      Wachel, J. C. (Buddy); Szenasi, Fred R. (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 1993)
    • Critical Speed Analysis Of An Eight-Stage Centrifugal Pump 

      Atkins, Kenneth E.; Tison, James D.; Wachel, J. C. (Buddy) (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1985)
      A critical speed and unbalance response analysis of an eight-stage centrifugal pump was performed, considering the variation of stiffness and damping coefficients with speed for both the oil firm bearings and the fluid ...
    • Design Audits. 

      Wachel, J. C. (Buddy) (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 1986)
      Dynamic design audits of machinery can identify potential problems before the machine is manufactured, thus preventing costly project delays and downtime. The types of audits that should be performed are discussed and ...
    • Piping Vibration Analysis. 

      Wachel, J. C. (Buddy); Morton, Scott J.; Atkins, Kenneth E. (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 1990)
      Excessive piping vibrations are a major cause of machinery downtime, leaks, fatigue failures, high noise, fires, and explosions in refineries and petrochemical plants. Excessive vibration levels usually occur when a ...
