Vibration Problems and Solutions in Pumps and Turbomachinery
MetadataShow full item record
This course presents analysis and testing methods for pumps and turbomachinery. Focus is on centrifugal pumps of all types, centrifugal compressors, axial compressors, fans, steam turbines and gas turbines. Rotordynamics and bladed disk vibration are included as modules as well as discussion of fluid-induced vibration (e.g. rotating stall and blade pass frequencies), acoustics, and mechanically induced vibration (imbalance misalignment, rubs, looseness). Troubleshooting methods and fixes are discussed with many detailed case histories.
