Vibration Analysis and Monitoring

Vibration Analysis and Monitoring

The SOCOTEC team has served as consultants to many projects related to vibrations, fluid-solid interactions, wind engineering, fatigue, noise transmission and control to federal, state and city agencies, national laboratories, and industry.  

Vibration Analysis and Monitoring 

There are many sources of vibration in the industrial environment. Excessive vibrations can lead to the formation of cracks, wear of bearings, loosening of connections, structural and mechanical failures, malfunction of electronic equipment and added costs to maintenance. Understanding the sources and effects of the vibration allows effective mitigation techniques to be applied. Our experience, combined with failure analysis and root cause methods have been used to provide solutions to numerous vibration-related problems. 

 

Capabilities

SOCOTEC provides: diagnostics of the problem, stress and failure analysis, vibration and strain gage testing, economical solutions to industries' challenging problems. Specific capabilities include:

Fitness for Service testing example in a vibratory environment

Fitness for Service in Vibratory Environment

-Materials that sustained damage due to fatigue cracking or/and corrosion
-Structures that require continued use
-Adequacy of flawed structures for continued use
-Projections of useful life for safe and reliable operations

Flow Induced Vibrations Example
