MACHINERY VIBRATION AND ROTORDYNAMICS
This book follows the first author’s book Rotordynamics of Turbomachinery
in its practical approach and style. Much of the material in that book
has been updated and extended with new information, new examples,
and a few corrections that reflect what has been learned since then.
Of particular interest and significance are the new chapters (4, 5, and 6)
on bearings, seals, and computer modeling contributed by the co-authors
Dr. Fouad Zeidan and Dr. Brian Murphy. Dr. Zeidan is the president of
two companies that design and manufacture high-performance bearings and seals. These products often require the design and modeling of the complete rotor-bearing system to ensure reliable operation and compatibility.
Dr. Murphy is the author of XLRotor™, one of the most widely used computer programs for rotordynamic analysis. Chapters 1 and 7 are also completely new. Chapter 1 describes the classical analytical techniques used by engineers for troubleshooting vibration problems. Chapter 7 gives
a history of the most important rotor dynamics analysis and experiments since 1869.
