Vibration Analysis: Machine Vibration, Basic Theory

Vibration Analysis: Machine Vibration, Basic Theory is part two of the Vibration Analysis six-part training series.

The course introduces the theory of machine vibration. It explains how forces cause machines to vibrate and includes a visual explanation of critical terms such as frequency, resonance and time/frequency domains, amplitude, displacement, velocity, and acceleration.

Course objectives include:

  • Understand the relationship between frequency and vibration
  • Understand natural frequency and resonance
  • Identify a time wave form
  • Understand time and frequency domains
  • Understand vibration amplitude
  • Explain the relationship between displacement, velocity, and acceleration
  • Understand phase measurements and angles
  • Define commonly used vibration analysis terms.
