Machinery Vibration: Measurement and Analysis
by Victor Wowk, 368pp, 245 illus, ISBN: 0070719365
Ninety percent of all machine failures are signaled months, even years, in advance by changes in machine vibrations. 

Some future failures are even predictable upon initial start-up. 

By understanding a machine's vibration "signature," you can diagnose, solve, and prevent problems, as well as reduce the cost of maintenance. 

     Machinery Vibration: Measurement and Analysis will show you how to use state-of-the-art instrumentation, transducers and fast Fourier transform (FFT) spectrum analyzers-to monitor machine conditions using the vibration signature. This expert sourcebook includes:
  • Case histories that illustrate strategies for solving machinery problems-from unbalances and misalignments to vortex flow and turbulence
  • A diagnostic chart for assessing the severity of vibration
  • An overview of technology used in "trending" machine performance
  • Guidelines for setting up a vibration monitoring system
  • Many illustrations throughout the book
     Whether you're a plant or mechanical engineer, maintenance engineer, facility manager, mechanic, or technician, this excellent book will enable you to troubleshoot mechanical problems and improve machinery performance.
