Journal Bearing Analysis Techniques
February 5-6, 2019 • April 9-10, 2019 • July 23-24, 2019 • October 15-16, 2019
In this course students will learn the basic principles of journal bearing design and rotordynamics in order to apply analysis techniques using time waveform, FFT spectra, orbits, shaft centerline plots, and load path plots. Accelerometer and proximity probe vibration data as well as dynamic strain data are covered.
Actual case studies are reviewed to demonstrate each of the discussed principles.
Course Length: 16 Hours
- Understand bearing design theory and how it applies to troubleshooting
- Understand basic rotordynamic theory and how it applies to troubleshooting
- Know how to collect the data necessary to plot a proper orbit
- Understand the value of filtered and unfiltered orbits
