Free Webinar: Rotordynamics Tutorial

Join us Wednesday, August 21, 2024, at 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. (U.S. Central Time)

Host: Thomas Kerr, Ph.D.

The purpose of this course is to provide the attendee with a basic understanding of rotordynamic theory, and to build on that theory with practical examples. At the end of this course, the attendee should understand the basic concepts of a Jeffcott Rotor and how this simple example illustrates the concepts of rotor critical speed, imbalance response plot, and rotor stability. This example will be expanded to inform the attendee on how more complex multi-degree of freedom systems are designed and analyzed using finite element methods.

After covering basic theory, the types of instruments used for vibration monitoring will be discussed, and various case studies will be used to illustrate vibration phenomenon such as imbalance, loose components, instability, and more.
