SLT 10 - Vibration analysis of plain bearings
(SLT 10)

Plain bearings are the predominant choice for bearings used to position the rotors of high power turbo machinery, ship propulsion machinery and other equipment where reliability as well as life is particularly important.
This SLT contains the selection, operation and performance characteristics of plain bearings including vibration analysis and diagnostic studies on common vibration problems that can occur in plain bearings. A case study on a turbine generator set is also discussed in this SLT.
