Practical Solutions to Machinery and Maintenance Vibration Problems
Chapter 6, Guide for Possible Sources of Vibration Based on Frequency and Amplitude
Section 1, Vibration Frequencies
This guide is based on the most common sources resulting in excessive vibration. It is not complete. The "art and science" of vibration analysis is far from perfected! A most important precaution: whenever a vibration amplitude at any specific frequency is high, or very high, it is always wise to check for a possible resonance at that frequency.
