Course Objectives

  • Select the appropriate machinery vibration measurement technique.
  • Set up instruments for basic resolution of amplitude, frequency and time.
  • Perform basic vibration analysis of machinery and components such as shafts, bearings, gears, fans, pumps and motors using spectrum analysis.
  • Maintain a database of results and trends.
  • Perform single-channel impact tests.
  • Classify, interpret, and evaluate test results in accordance with applicable specifications and standards.
  • Recommend minor corrective actions, and understand basic single plane field balancing concepts.

Course Topics

  • Principles of Vibration
  • Data Acquisition
  • Signal Processing
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Fault Analysis
  • Corrective Action
  • Equipment Knowledge
  • Acceptance Testing
  • Equipment Testing and Diagnostics
  • Reference Standards
