The course will provide a refreshment of knowledge for the how rotating equipment work and what are main problems facing it during operations of them. Also, it will provide a solid foundation for technologists moving into a machine monitoring and diagnostic role. It gives a detailed advanced treatment of the detection, location and diagnosis of faults in Rotating and Reciprocating Machinery. Industrial case study and examples are used throughout the course to emphasize key points and to underline the relevance and applicability of the topics being addressed. 



Course Objectives: 

At the end of this course, participant will be able to: 

  • Employ a systematic approach to investigating mechanical failure 

  • Plan testing, measurement and analysis to help discover the causes of a failure 

  • Design and evaluate solutions based on your understanding of the causes of failure Design and evaluate measures to prevent the failure reoccurring 

  • Recognize a good explanation from a poor; understand how evidence supports explanations and when it doesn’t, and be able to evaluate explanations qualitatively and quantitatively using a variety of simple techniques
