Devices for in Situ Tuning of Machinery Structures to Mitigate Resonance.

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The amplitude of machinery vibrations becomes very high when any of a support structure resonance frequency lies within the regime of machinery operating frequency. During resonant condition, the support structure normally demonstrates vibrations in rigid body modes and aggravating the shaft vibration conditions.
Sometimes, the evaluation of resonant frequencies for equipment base frame is not given its due importance by the OEM. For medium sized rotating machines. To identify such condition at site and rectification is cumbersome.
Tuning of the base frame can be done either by increasing mass m or increasing k by stiffing the base frame to shift its resonant frequency. A passive and active control of coupled modes of vibration (rocking and pitching) can be controlled by using servo valves and hydraulics. For passive control, some devices can used which can mitigate the structural resonance problem. The proposed methods shall cover any possible discrepancy of structural resonance and on-site grouting issues where a support structure may undergo push pull action by above lacunae thereby aggravating machinery vibration
