Gear Coupling Misalignment Induced Forces And Their Effects On Machinery Vibration.
MetadataShow full item record
Gear couplings can produce large static forces and moments that can affect the vibrations of turbomachinery, even with nearly perfect alignment. Research, testing and case histories have verified this theory and are reported. Methods are suggested to control the direction of these forces for reduced vibration and enhanced turbomachinery reliability.
