This course provides a thorough review of a wide variety of causes of process plant piping vibration from the point of view of an engineer that must identify the cause of vibration, determine if vibration is excessive, and correct the problem if it is. It provides a background on fundamental causes of piping vibration and how to identify source of vibration, rules of thumb and simplified methods for evaluating vibration severity, and methods of treatment. A wide variety of causes of vibration are covered in order to enable the participant to properly evaluate the variety of piping vibration problems that can occur in piping systems.
At the end of this course, participant will be able to:
Provide an integral, analytical/test approach to solving field vibration problems with an emphasis on piping vibration issues
Provide a common language that supports clear understanding for both the analyst and the test engineer of what each needs to solve vibration problems
General vibration facts and plant vibration issues
2- Optimum Vibration Problem Resolution Strategy
Root cause determination approach; Integration of analysis and test
3- Basic Vibration Theory
Terminology: sine waves, amplitude, frequency, phase.
Single DOF Parameters: stiffness, damping, and mass, Governing EOM
Multi degree-of-freedom system characteristics: mode shape and frequency
4- Vibration Test Fundamentals
Test specifications: frequency range, measured parameters, sensor locations, sensor types
Instrumentation concerns: linearity, range, bandwidth, installation, uncertainty analysis
Data acquisition: digital vs. analog. Digital DAQ issues: amplitude resolution and aliasing.
5- Signal Processing
FFTs, windowing, filtering, digital integration, averaging, overlap and order tracking
6- Data Analysis Techniques
Data analysis: time history, frequency spectrum; Data statistics: peak, peak-to-peak, RMS
7- Vibration Causes and Data Interpretation
Imbalance: static, dynamic; Misalignment: parallel and angular; Bent or bowed shaft
Resonance and Critical speed; Damaged bearings; Gear problems; Fluid induced vibration
8- Case Studies
This course is directed towards engineers responsible for operating piping systems. However, designers of new piping systems will also find the broad coverage of potential vibration problems a time saving briefing on the variety of vibration problems that can occur in piping systems.
