Abstract:

A practical guide has been developed to provide operators, shipyards, shipowners, and others who must deal with ship vibration problems, but who have limited knowledge and experience in the field, with an understanding of the nature of the most common problems frequently encountered, how to assess and evaluate them, and what alternatives are available for corrective action. A review of vibration fundamentals and a detailed explanation of the nature and scope of shipboard vibration are presented to assist in the understanding of the various problems typically encountered. Available instrumentation and the proper method of their use in shipboard studies is presented along with recommended vibration criteria and an approach to their use in problem solving. Examples of typical problems and their solutions are included. Keywords Shipboard vibration Ships hull Ships machinery.
