-- An up-to-date, hands-on single-source diagnostic guide for process machinery.
-- How to use software tools to evaluate machinery behavior.
-- 45 detailed case studies describing problem definition, investigation, analytical technique and corrective solutions.
This is a single source reference for process machinery diagnostics and troubleshooting. It includes usable computations, analytical procedures, definitions, fundamental machinery behavior, static and dynamic measurements, data acquisition and processing, data interpretation and field problem-solving techniques.
The book begins with fundamental concepts of mechanical motion, and expands these basic models into acceptable simulations of real machines. Steam and gas turbines, gear boxes, centrifugal and reciprocating compressors, motors and generators are each analyzed from multiple perspectives. The text describes common malfunctions, plus unusual excitations and failure mechanisms. It is extensively illustrated, and contains detailed examples with sample calculations -- along with 45 case histories that cover entire scenarios, from problem definition through corrective solutions.
