One of the most common causes of severe machinery vibration is the misalignment of drive shafts and other components. This new book provides engineers and technicians with a practical guide to the alignment of shafts, bearings, gears, pulleys, and a wide variety of power transmission components in machines. Readers will find step-by-step procedures for balancing, resonance, structural vibrations, isolation, instruments, diagnostics, and trending. Included are case studies of real-world problems ranging from simple fans to high-speed turbines ... extensive coverage of the FFT spectrum analyzer ... and descriptions of methods requiring only simple tools.
