Good morning everyone, this is first post on the IET forums from me.

I need to gen-up on vibration theory. I've got a reasonable idea of how to use vibration analysis equipment but what I need is a more thorough knowledge of the theories and principles to underpin what I already know and to help me use the analysis equipment more effectively for condition monitoring and fault finding.

Can anyone recommend some reading material which covers the basics but doesn't require a doctorate to understand it. I'm a reasonably intelligent bloke I suppose but at the heart of it I just like fixing stuff so the high level topics of engineering can go right over my head.

Anyway, I look forward to receiving your replies and advice.

All the best,
Kev

Thanks very much for your responses they were just the sort of pointers I am looking for.

I've downloaded the PDFs form the free study site but for some reason they won't let me print them which is a bit of a pain.

They are secured files. Suggest you search Google to find a solution or use Alan's suggestion or use Microsoft OneNote.

Have a look at the document linked below, which deals with among other things, basic vibration theory:

CNSC Science & Reactor Fundamentals - Volume 1 - Mechanical Equipment

This was originally developed from the Canadian CANDU nuclear reactor programme, but much of what it contains in terms of vibration I would propose is universally applicable.
