Machinery Vibration and Rotordynamics Short Course
January 6, 2020 - January 10, 2020
The Machinery Vibration and Rotordynamics short course offers a practical approach to understanding basic vibration theory and using it to solve mechanical vibration problems. Rotordynamics terminology in common use will be defined and explained, including critical speeds, critical speed inversion, unbalance response and rotordynamic instability. Covers rotordyanmic topics including force coefficients for bearings, seals, impellers, turbine wheels and squeeze film dampers; troubleshooting oil film bearings, the finite element and transfer matrix methods, and more.
