Written in a clear, understandable style,
this new edition of Vibration Spectrum Analysis includes valuable information
on using the latest techniques of spectrum analysis in solving problems and
enhancing machine reliability. Vibration analysts, predictive maintenance
specialists, and field mechanics will find it to be a key reference. A book
good for both engineers and non-engineers alike.
Offers new information on current
instrumentation as well as additional appendixes, case histories and practice
questions. Explains how to use instrumentation to monitor and interpret
vibration signature. Provides information needed to identify potential
problems before they cause machine failure. Emphasizes practical matters of
developing an intuitive understanding of the nature of vibration, giving the
reader the ability to attack any problem with a good chance of success.
