Abstract

Due to inevitable unbalanced masses that always exist, a rotating machine will experience vibration to various extent depending on the characteristics of loads and support conditions. When two pieces of vibratory machines are installed close to each other, the vibration of either machine may further be amplified by the interaction between the two machines. In this paper, the interaction effect between two adjacent vibratory machines supported on a flexible floor was investigated. It was found that for the case investigated, the most critical condition occurred when the unbalanced forces were out-of-phase.

Interaction of Adjacent Vibratory Machines

St. Louis, Missouri

Due to inevitable unbalanced masses that always exist, a rotating machine will experience vibration to various extent depending on the characteristics of loads and support conditions. When two pieces of vibratory machines are installed close to each other, the vibration of either machine may further be amplified by the interaction between the two machines. In this paper, the interaction effect between two adjacent vibratory machines supported on a flexible floor was investigated. It was found that for the case investigated, the most critical condition occurred when the unbalanced forces were out-of-phase.
