CAIRO BOOKS's Description
In-operation vibration monitoring for complex mechanical structures and
rotating machines is of key importance in many industrial areas such as
aeronautics (wings and other structures subject to strength), automobile
(gearbox mounting with a sports car body), rail transportation, power
engineering (rotating machines, core and pipes of nuclear power plants), and
civil engineering (large buildings subject to hurricanes or earthquakes,
bridges, dams, offshore structures). Tools for the detection and the diagnosis
of small changes in vibratory characteristics are particularly useful to set up
a preventive maintenance policy based on the actual evolution of the state of
the monitored machine or structure, as opposed to systematic a priori planning.
Ambient Vibration Monitoring is the backbone of such structural assessment
monitoring and control. It provides the possibility to gain useful data under
ambient conditions for the assessment of structures and components.
Written by a widely respected authority in this area, Ambient Vibration
Monitoring describes the current practice of ambient vibration methodologies
illustrated by a number of practical examples. Designed to aid the practical
engineer with their understanding of the topic, it is the culmination of many
years of practical research and includes numerous ‘real world’ examples. It
also provides information on applicable solutions.
This book will enable not only practitioners (in civil, mechanical and
aerospace engineering), but also researchers and students, to learn more about
the theory and practical applications of this subject.
