21-23 September, 1998



Technology is at its threshold to enter into a new era , where product requirements will press the designer to design the outer bonds of light weight, small clearance, high speed , long life , high reliability and environmental acceptability and economically viable. To ensure these requirements of a rotating machine, the Vibration Technology will also advance in areas such as design, analysis, manufacturing, operation and test of high speed rotors.

The aim of this symposium is to bring together the most distinguished Experts in Mechanical Vibrations in order to share the wealth of knowledge and information. The contributions are invited for oral and poster presentations in the following areas:

* Design.

* Balancing and alignment.

* Instabilities.

* Rotor Dynamics.

* Analysis.

* Vibration Control and Isolation.

* Mathematical Modeling.

* Service Experience.
