The operational reliability of a rotary equipment train is dependent on the vibration of its components. Often, the only evidence of this vibration is gear noise or coupling wear. However, these early indicators might eventually develop into high-amplitude vibration, resulting in gear wear, gear tooth failures, or broken shafts. The torsional response characteristics of rotating and reciprocating equipment should therefore be analyzed and evaluated to ensure system reliability.

In vibration analysis of mechanical structures, it has become increasingly common to use lumped mass models combined with experimental measurements for vibration analysis. This approach can be expanded to develop more sophisticated models to allow the creation of a highly refined, realistic vibration analysis environment. This article illustrates this method using the advanced system-level modeling and simulation platform MapleSim™, from Maplesoft.
