Presented here is a comprehensive work on the general principles that apply to every type of modern rotating machinery. This handbook addresses both the theoretical and practical issues pertaining to the design, analysis, development, production, and
maintenance of high-speed rotating machinery. It is the only work available that provides engineers with the information they need to anticipate, locate, and eliminate destructive vibration. This outstanding handbook contains chapters written by recognized experts in their respective fields, providing practical information on: vibration considerations in the design of rotating machinery; analytic prediction of rotordynamic response; balancing of flexible and rigid rotors; and performance
verification, diagnostics, parameter identification, and vibration monitoring in rotating machinery. Covering the general principles that apply to every type of modern rotating machinery, the handbook is packed with specific examples about a wide array of equipment, including steam turbines, electrical motors, generators, aircraft gas turbines, reciprocating engines, and centrifuges.
