[Category I]

When I checked the voltage signals of vibration acceleration on a rotating machinery, the sign wave was as shown below. Calibration value is 1.0 m/s2 per volt. Which one of the following amplitude values is correct?

  • 1) 7.0m/s2
  • 2) 6.0m/s2
  • 3) 5.0m/s2
  • 4) 4.0m/s2
  • 5) 3.0m/s2
[Category II]

For field balancing, I measured the initial vibration vector A as shown below, added a weight of 1g at the position of 120° and measured the vector B. What is the amplitude phase of the initial vibration vector A?

  • 1) 50mm 150°
  • 2) 50mm 180°
  • 3) 60mm 150°
  • 4) 60mm 210°
  • 5) 60mm 30°
[Category III]

On a two-stage gear speed reducer, of which the input rotational speed is 1785 rpm, a vibration as shown below was measured. The gear mesh frequency at the faster rotating stage is 740 Hz and the slower rotating stage is 470 Hz. Which one of the following is the most likely failure that is being experienced?

  • 1) Mesh failure of gears at the faster stage
  • 2) Mesh failure of gears at the slower stage
  • 3) Misalignment
  • 4) Unbalance
  • 5) Lost teeth at the faster stage
