Engineers' Guide to Rotating Equipment
By

Rating
Intended for use as an introductory guide to rotating equipment, this book incorporates both technical and administrative aspects of rotating equipment manufacture and use. It introduces the basic principles of balancing, vibration, noise and inspection and testing of a wide range of equipment. A companion volume to the author's "Engineers' Guide to Pressure Equipment", it should be particularly helpful in guiding users through the European Machinery Directive regulating this field.
