Course Summary

Introduction

The operating condition of a machine is normally associated with the noise or vibration it produces. That is why we suspect a mechanical problem when a machine shakes or vibrates abnormally. The noise and vibration level of equipment has been used as a measure of its mechanical condition for many years.

A new technique, called vibration analysis, has been developed to help maintain machinery in good condition.

This course covers the basic principles of vibration analysis, the use of vibration analysis to detect equipment operating problems, and the identification of possible sources of noise and vibration of equipment.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • noises and vibrations,
  • detection and predictive maintenance,
  • measuring apparatus,
  • data analysis,
  • calibration, and
  • suggestions for practical exercises.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the basic principles of vibration analysis.
  • Detect equipment malfunctions using vibration analysis.
  • Identify the possible sources of equipment vibration and noises.

Recommended Background

  • This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, or conditional monitoring for mining applications.

HumEng International

HumEng provides online courses and assessments for mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, and condition monitoring for applications in mining.

The HumEng mission is to design, develop and implement training solutions that increase operational efficiency and productivity, and to sustain these improvements through training best practices.

The HumEng approach to training is based on skills management. Experience has proven that the acquisition of key skills, and the transfer of these skills to the shop floor, increases a company's competitiveness. This is even truer today, when operations must often rely on fewer employees, due to rationalization or to recruiting challenges.
