Practical Rotordynamics for Real Machinery
April 8-11, 2019
Xdot Engineering and Analysis will be offering a short course on Practical Rotordynamics for Real Machinery April 8 through 11 in Charlottesville, VA. Feel free to bring your Dyrobes questions and analysis.
The short course is targeted at beginning and intermediate rotating equipment engineers who have a need to develop a practical understanding of the dynamic behavior and analysis of rotating machinery which their company builds, buys, or maintains. The typical participant would have a bachelor’s degree in engineering and some prior experience with rotating machinery.
This course will be team taught by world-class experts in rotordynamics. It focuses on the practical use of rotordynamic analysis as a tool to:
- Ensure equipment being purchased does not have clear rotordynamic issues that will lead to unreliable operation (rotordynamic audit), and/or
- Support development of new machinery with smooth, reliable operation (design), and/or
- Assist in understanding and resolving field problems with existing machinery (vibration troubleshooting).
We will start with the basics, and then go through all of the major elements of a complete analysis, including:
- Lateral response and stability
- Bearing analysis
- Torsional analysis
- Overview of API standards
- Selected case histories and examples
Continuing Education Units
Xdot Engineering and Analysis will award a Certificate for the completed training course. You will need to contact your state bureau to find out if this will count toward Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
