This is a book on the technology of analyzing process machinery malfunctions. It begins with fundamental concepts of mechancial motion, and expands the basic models into acceptable simulations of real machines. Relationships between the actual machinery, the analytical model, and the vibration characteristics are examined. Specifically, steam and gas turbines, gear boxes, centrifugal and reciprocating compressors, plus motors and generators are analyzed from different perspectives. It is extensively illustrated, and it contains detailed examples with sample calculations. The book also includes 45 case histories that cover the entire scenario from problem definition, through investigation, plus the final corrective solutions.

Specific, practical guidance for every individual involved with solving process machinery problems. The single source reference for usable computations, analytical procedures, definitions, fundamental machinery behavior, static and dynamic measurements, data acquisition, processing, and data interpretation, plus field problem solving.
Successful machinery malfunction analysis requires the diagnostician to understand the mechanical equipment, the measurement of vibration and other parameters, plus the underlying physical principles that govern the rotordynamics. This book covers all three areas, presenting of machinery characteristics, and the use of vibration measurements and analytical models It covers an exceptionally broad range of process machinery, including industrial steam, gas and hydro turbines, centrifugal and reciprocating compressors, expanders, gear boxes, pumps, motors, blowers plus vertical and horizontal generators and drives.About the Author:
