Vibration Analysis of Rotating Machinery as Excitation of Concrete Structure Vibrations

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 76)


Concrete structures are exposed to ground-borne vibrations caused by transient or continuous excitation. Increased vibration levels and long-time exposure to vibrations could cause different levels of structural damages. As the continuous source of vibration, excitation is common to have rotational machinery. Rotational machinery faults usually increase the machinery vibrations, which are one of the excitation sources. In this paper, it would be presented an application of rotational machinery vibration analysis in determining the cause of increased concrete structure vibrations.
