Illustrates in a practical non-mathematical manner, important aspects of vibration analysis and resonance. The paper is based on work done in 1978, using a soft bearing balance stand with seismic velocity transducers, single plane tracking filter, X-Y plotter, and shaft stick. Today, such balancing is generally done using multi-plane computerized instrumentation, in a high-speed, vacuum “balance pit”
