    • Vibration Analysis of Gas Turbine’s Transportation Carrigage and Warranty Issues 

      de Guarda Matos, Danilo; Silva de Matos, Wiriton (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      This paper describes the investigation of whether the vibration shock limits were exceeded on the transportation of 2 gas turbines. This investigation was requested due to an improper suspension type of the carriage used ...
    • Vibration Field Problem Resolved with Analytical Diagnostic Approach and Innovative Impeller Design 

      Schiavello, Bruno; Cicatelli, Giancarlo (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2016)
      Case Study 20: Several pumps of same design exhibited field vibrations above API limits, dominated by Vane Passage Frequency (VPF). Root cause analysis included both experimental and theoretical paths. Experimental ...
    • Zero Leakage Compressor Seals 

      Watanabe, Takuya (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Dry gas seal is applied to refrigeration compressor. Some of configurations for dry gas seal system are shown in API 617 and 614, however those systems are designed with condition that leak gas from dry gas seal is released ...
