Using a PC based system for machinery transient analysis

  • C. Nicholls


A transient event is the unsteady-state response of a dynamic system to a changing excitation. Mechanical transients can occur during run-up or run-down of a machine, or when the machine’s regular operation is disturbed by external or internal events. Mechanical Transient Analysis is the procedure by which the mechanical response of a machine to changing excitation is captured, displayed and examined.
