This volume is concerned with vibration-free and quiet operation of hydraulic machines. It deals with the problems caused by mechanical and hydraulic excitations in hydraulic machinery (except for transients which are treated in a separate volume). The invited authors from five continents are internationally recognized experts in their fields. The book looks at the fundamentals for analysis of fluid structure systems, structural vibration, shaft rotordynamics and system instability; noise and diagnosis are introduced with examples from practical experience.
