Rotating machines

Vibro-acoustics is much used to study the behaviour of rotating machines. A wide range of information can be obtained, useful for maintenance or R&D, among other purposes. Applications are:

  • reduction of noise emitted by the machine
  • ranking of sources
  • failure detection – quality diagnosis
  • identification of defective parts
  • characterization of transfer paths
