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.

Table of Contents

Basics of Signal Processing. Vibration Data Presentation Formats. Vibration Monitoring, Trending Analysis and Fault Detection. Experimental Modal Analysis. Operational Deflection Shape (ODS). Shaft Torsional Vibration Measurement. Selection of Transducers and Data Analyser for a Machine. Future Trend in VCM.

About the Author

Jyoti K. Sinha (BSc (Mech), MTech (Aero), PhD, CEng, FIMechE) is Programme Director of Reliability Engineering and Asset Management (REAM) MSc course and Head, Dynamics Laboratory, School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, The University of Manchester, Manchester, M13 9PL, UK. From the beginning (1989) of the professional career, Dr Sinha was doing research in Vibration and Structural Dynamics, including Health Monitoring techniques. Dr Sinha was also extensively involved in the development of a number of innovative vibration-based techniques related to rotating machines, pieces of equipment and structural components of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) in India. Dr Sinha also received the prestigious award

“BOYSCAST (Better Opportunity for Young Scientist in a Chosen Area of Science and Technology) Fellowship” in 1999 from the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India for my outstanding work in solving a number of complex vibration related problems to enhance plant reliability and reduce maintenance overhead of the NPPs. Dr Sinha moved to academia in 2005 after 16 years of industrial experience and then joined the School of MACE in January 2007. Since then Dr Sinha has widen his research activities and more publications in the journals and Maintenance Magazines (for REAM course promotion) along with my teaching and managing REAM course. . Under Dr Sinha leadership, REAM MSc course has move strength-to-strength in the last 10 years.

Dr Sinha is internationally well-known experts in Vibration-based Condition Monitoring and Maintenance of Machines and Structures. He is involved in and solved a number of industrial vibration problems of machines and structures by in-situ vibration measurements and analysis in many plants in last 27 years. Dr Sinha is the author of more than 225 publications (Journals, conferences, books, edited book/conference proceedings and technical reports) and gave a number of keynote/invited lectures. He is author of a book “Vibration Analysis, Instruments and Signal Processing” and co-author of two books. A total of 12 PhD and EngD students have already completed under his supervision in the different areas of vibration, rotordynamics and signal processing since January 2007. He has also supervised nearly 100 MSc Dissertations on the vibration and maintenance topics. He is currently supervising 5 PhD students.

Dr Sinha has started a series of an International Conference of Maintenance Engineering (IncoME) and the Journal of Maintenance Engineering (JoME) from August 2016. Dr Sinha is also the associate editor of 2 international journals, Structural Health Monitoring: An International Journal and Journal of Vibration Engineering and Technologies, editorial board member of the journal Structural Monitoring and Maintenance, and Machines. He is also technical committee member of IFTOMM Rotordynamics. Recently he is appointed as the British Standard Institute (BSI) Member and involved in reviewing ISO codes related to Machine Vibration.
