Risk of damage through vibrations
Vibrations are dynamic loads presenting a serious risk of damage through material overstressing that can be detrimental to the service life of plant installations and structures. In extreme cases vibration can lead to the complete breakdown or destruction of the facility. Slender structures and components with low natural frequencies and weak self-damping characteristics are particularly susceptible in this respect.
Cause of vibrations
Vibrations can arise through internal excitation such as mechanical or hydrodynamic processes or external ones such as wind loads or earthquakes. Internal excitations mostly arise from rotating masses originating from the operation of machines, aggregates and processing facilities.
Vibrations are controllable
In plant or building construction the general aim is to exclude possible vibration stresses in the facilities by way of design and layout. If this is not possible for economic reasons, the vibration due to operation (internal excitation), as well as vibrations arising from external sources, can be effectively reduced to a harmless level using appropriate techniques and devices for vibration reduction.
