From the Publisher

Machinery Vibration Analysis and Predictive Maintenance provides a detailed examination of the detection, location and diagnosis of faults in rotating and reciprocating machinery using vibration analysis. The basics and underlying physics of vibration signals are first examined. The acquisition and processing of signals is then reviewed followed by a discussion of machinery fault diagnosis using vibration analysis. Hereafter the important issue of rectifying faults that have been identified using vibration analysis is covered. The book also covers the other techniques of predictive maintenance such as oil and particle analysis, ultrasound and infrared thermography. The latest approaches and equipment used together with the latest techniques in vibration analysis emerging from current research are also highlighted. Understand the basics of vibration measurement Apply vibration analysis for different machinery faults Diagnose machinery-related problems with vibration analysis techniques

Watch a Squishy Robot Oh-so-Gently Catch a Fish

Hyunwoo Yuk/MIT Soft Active Materials Lab CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 Transparent, Gel-based Robot This transparent robot can catch fish. Very, very confused fish. The totally translucent robot caught its prey entirely unawares. Soft, flexible arms wrapped around the fish, enfolding it in a squishy, mechanical embrace—until the robot relaxed, unfurled its arms, and let the startled prey swim away. The multi-limbed machine is a soft robot, and while it may just be annoying fish in a lab today, it offers a promise of medical innovations for humans in the future. Hydrogels are the key to this robot's fishing

Band of Brothers

Entrepreneur: Jeff McWhinney, owner of San Rafael, Calif.-based McWhinney Designs, which produces men's custom wedding rings with hinged mechanisms that allow for perfect fit and easy removal. "Aha" moment: McWhinney is a machinist who spent years at 3M and now works as a designer and programmer for Paragon Machine Works, a manufacturer of titanium bicycle components. "I've been designing and making things out of metal my whole career," he says. When he was getting married, McWhinney "wanted something special and something practical," so he created a ring for himself with a sleek hinge. It occ
