The Vibration Analysis Handbook – James L. Taylor – 1st Edition


The author has written this primarily from the viewpoint of analyzing vibrations on heavy industrial and mill gearing that may have been in service for a prolonged time.

The purpose is to diagnose , especially the source or cause of failure. However, the principles and techniques can be used for all types and sizes of gears, as well as for gear noise .
