Bearing & Gearbox Vibration Analysis Using Demodulation Techniques (Part 1)

Bearing & Gearbox Vibration Analysis Using Demodulation Techniques (Part 1)

Bearings and Gearboxes are fundamental components of rotating machines and are used in many industrial applications. These are critical components and as such any failure can prove expensive in both repair cost and down-time. Because of this condition monitoring has…

Vibration : Measure Acceleration, Velocity or Displacement?

Vibration : Measure Acceleration, Velocity or Displacement?

When using vibration data, especially in conjunction with modelling systems, the measured data is often needed as an acceleration, as a velocity and as a displacement. Sometimes different analysis groups require the measured signals in a different form. Clearly, it is impractical to measure all three at once even if we could. Physically it is nigh on impossible to put three different types of transducer in the same place.

How To Analyze Noise & Vibration In Rotating Machines

How To Analyze Noise & Vibration In Rotating Machines

In this article we will look at the basic steps needed to measure noise & vibration in rotating machines. We won’t look in great detail at some of the techniques involved – we deal with these elsewhere on the blog. This material…

Converting Acceleration, Velocity & Displacement

Converting Acceleration, Velocity & Displacement

From time to time I meet engineers who are interested in the conversions between acceleration, velocity and displacement. Often, they have measured acceleration, but are interested in displacement or vice versa. Equally, velocity is often used to find acceleration. This article outlines the nature of the conversion between these units and will suggest the preferred method for doing so. .

10 Sites That Every Engineer Should Know About

Here’s another post inspired by an office discussion. We were discussing our favourite engineering based websites and realised the results would make a great blog post. So after a rummage through our bookmarks and a little further debate we’ve come…

A Simple Frequency Response Function

A Simple Frequency Response Function

The following article will attempt to explain the basic theory of the frequency response function. This basic theory will then be used to calculate the frequency response function between two points on a structure using an accelerometer to measure the…
