Meshing is an aspect of finite element analysis that sometimes gets overlooked by FE analysts, particularly those with the luxury of comparatively small models and/or powerful computing resources available. This is a quick guide on meshing like a pro.
Vibration monitoring is a flexible and robust method for detecting and diagnosing faults in moving machinery. It is critical for the analyst to have clear understanding of the vibration signal being analysed and the tools at their disposal. This post serves to explain the differences between stationary and non-stationary vibration signals and the tools available to analyse them.
