This course is intended to provide an understanding of machinery vibration analysis and the detection of common vibration faults in rotating equipment. The course shall present a basic understanding on the measurements and analysis of vibrations, how faults originate in rotating equipment and how these faults can be detected using vibration measurements. The course assumes little or no background in vibration analysis, and starts with fundamentals of mechanical vibrations, measurement parameters and how vibrations are measured and defined. It then moves on to measurement sensors and signal processing techniques, data reduction, displays and faults analysis using vibration analysis. Faults include all common machinery failures: unbalance, misalignment, bent shafts, and looseness, bearing faults, gears faults, cavitation, resonance and electrical faults. Machineries include pumps, turbines, compressors, motors and generators. Examples and case studies are included. Vibration severity assessment is also included. The workshops and demonstrations, scheduled throughout the training course, are used to illustrate theory and applications.
