Vibration-Based Condition Monitoring (VCM) is a well accepted approach in industries for early detection of any defect, thereby triggering the maintenance process and ultimately reducing overheads and plant downtime. A number of vibration instruments, data analyzer and related hardware and software codes are developed to meet the industry requirements. This book aims to address issues such as frequency range estimation for vibration measurements, sensors, data collection and data analyzer including related parameters and step-by-step approach, faced by VCM professionals. Each chapter is written in the tutorial style with experimental and/or industrial examples for clear understanding.
