ABCM associates R$ 260,00
Obs: the registration fee includes the material of the course, lunch and coffee-breaks.
Who Will Benefit:
Targeted audiences include researchers from academy and industry, field service and machine design engineers and managers from a variety of industrial organizations. The industries include: Automotive, Industrial Motors, Compressors, Large Steam Turbines, Gas Turbines, Large Electrical Generators, Exciters, Chemical Plants, Paper and Sugar mills etc. Machines operated in these industries experience vibration issues such as Shaft Misalignment, Mass Imbalance, Bearing Instability, Steam/Gas Whirl, Bearing Support Pedestal issues and Foundation Degradation etc. This course is, therefore, tailored to provide the participants with simple and step-by-step methods that will explain the failure mechanisms in machines and the corrective actions as well.
The Lead Instructor is Dr. Raj Subbiah.
He has a Ph.D. from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.
His specialized areas are: Rotor dynamics, Fluid-film Bearings, Steam and Gas Seal Dynamics, Structural Vibration and Life Assessment. He has more than 30 years of experience in Rotor Dynamics and Vibration related problems both in academic and industrial environment.
He is a member of the ISO committee on vibration of machinery and has contributed significantly through development of standards.
He has published more than 100 papers, technical reports and articles. Dr. Subbiah is a senior technical advisor for Siemens Energy, USA.
The objective of this course is, therefore, to provide sound theoretical background that will lead to better understanding of vibration problems experienced in rotating machines in various industries. At the end, case studies of real life problems and the solutions will be discussed.
The participants are expected to have an understanding of the vibration theory for a better grasp of the materials taught in this course.
