· Why You Should Attend This course is for beginning and intermediate level engineers in the petroleum, chemical, power, and gas industries or anyone interested in the dynamics of rotating machinery. The emphasis is on turbomachines such as turbines, compressors, expanders, motors, pumps, and generators. The intent is to understand the rotordynamics of these machines and their subcomponents to help select, analyze, troubleshoot and repair them for maximum reliability and minimum vibration problems. This is not a math intensive course. Case histories and several workshops for hands-on evaluation of actual machines will be given.

Course Agenda:

The following list of topics will be covered: · Bearings and Seals · Critical Speed Analysis · Unbalance Response · Rotor and System Stability · Time Transient Analysis · Application Examples · Torsional Vibration Analysis and Coupling Selection · Torsional Forced Response Analysis · Transient Torsional Analysis · Modal Analysis use in Rotordynamics Analysis · Overview of API RP 684 A comprehensive short course presented by the Turbomachinery Laboratory at Texas A&M University, a part of the Texas Engineering Experiment Station.
