Here is the full list of best reference books on Machinery Vibration and Diagnostics.
|1. “Machinery Noise and Diagnostics” by R.H.Lyon
Book Review: This book explains that the forces and motions within machines are the main source of ound and vibration that are produced by the machine. The book also demonstrates various mechanisms like gears, electromagnetics, flow and combustion techniques which are involved in the production of forces and motions. The book also illustrates how the machine responds to excitation and also how that resultant vibrations are involved in radiation of sound. The book also explains the determination of mechanical conditions of machine with the help of sounds and vibrations.
|2. “Fundamentals of Mechanical Vibrations” by S.G.Kelly|
|3. “Vibration Problems in Engineering” by S.P.Timoshenko, W. Weaver and D.H.Young
Book Review: This book demonstrates the vibration theory, various concepts related to vibration theory and provides an introduction to the most powerful and modern computational techniques. The book describes the normal mode technique that is used for linear multi degree and infinite degree of freedom systems. The book also illustrates the numerical methods that are used for nonlinear systems. The book also contains a chapter on finite element method that shows the discretion of continuous system which further results in simplification of analysis.
|4. “Modal Testing: Theory and Practice” by D.J.Ewins
Book Review: This book very nicely describes all the measures and steps that are involved in planning, executing and interpreting the results of a modal test. The book also describes the latest advancements and the newer technologies that have emerged in the past decade. The book also contains new chapters on rotating machinery and usage of scanning laser vibrometer.
The book also makes too much effort to ensure that the readers understand the physics involved in the stages as well as the mathematical concepts.
|5. “Machinery Vibration : Measurement and Analysis” by Victor Wowk|
|6. “Machinery Vibration and Rotordynamics” by John M. Vance, Fouad Y. Zeidan, Brian Murphy|
|7. “Flow-Induced Pulsation and Vibration in Hydroelectric Machinery” by Andr Coutu|
|8. “Vibration and Wear in High Speed Rotating Machinery” by F. Pina Da Silva, Julio M. Montalvao E. Silva|
|9. “Rotating Machinery, Structural Health Monitoring, Shock and Vibration” by Proulx|
|10. “Mechanical Vibrations and Industrial Noise Control” by L. G. Lasithan|
