Axial Vibration Characteristics Of Metal-Flexing Couplings
MetadataShow full item record
Increased usage of metal-flexing couplings on high-speed rotating machinery has created awareness of the axial resonant vibration characteristics of this type of coupling. A testing program has been conducted at Rexnord Research and Development Laboratory; this program has been directed toward a quantified study of the phenomenon, as well as correlation of measured and calculated values, so as to avoid operational problems during the design phase of the machinery train. In addition, techniques are presented which permit the coupling designer to predictably modify the coupling and thereby make in-place retrofits should an axial resonance condition occur in the field.
