In Introduction to Vibration, the student will be able to define basic terminology associated with vibration, read vibration measurement values from time base waveform and spectrum plots, and describe the operation and application of vibration transducers.

·         Explain the reasons for vibration monitoring and maintenance strategies

·         Explain key components in the definition of vibration.

·         Describe vibration motion in a measurement plane as changes in displacement, velocity, and acceleration.

·         Define the parameters used to measure vibration motion and state the units used to express each parameter (amplitude, frequency, phase).

·         Describe the principles of vibration transducer operation, the benefits and disadvantages of each type, and typical scale factor of output signal.

·         Apply selection criteria to choose a useable vibration transducer for a specific machine vibration application.

·         Read values of amplitude, frequency, and phase and recognize sources of vibration indicated by waveform and spectrum plots.
