Machinery Vibrations and Rotordynamics Short Course
January 7, 2019 @ 8:00 am - January 11, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
The Machinery Vibrations and Rotordynamics short course offers a practical approach to understanding basic vibration theory and using it to solve mechanical vibration problems in the field. Rotordynamics terminology in common use will be defined and explained, including critical speeds, critical speed inversion, unbalance response and rotordynamic instability.
Who should attend?
The course is designed to benefit both young engineers and veterans who want to freshen their skills and learn about what practices are helping others achieve success.The course offers concepts and techniques for engineers involved in design, operation and maintenance of rotating equipment. Participants should have experience with rotating machinery and a bachelor’s degree or equivalent knowledge of basic college-level mathematics.
