VIBRATION FROM A SHIP OWNER'S STANDPOINT
Various vibration areas on this owner's vessels are discussed as well as the practical remedies used. The paper deals only with tanker vibration. With machinery aft and a short stiff shafting system and a limited width for a substantially rugged engine foundation, all the factors for a potential vibration problem exist, unless eliminated by careful design. Listed are the most frequent vibratory problems encountered and the method of dealing with them: Hull/Superstructures (1) bridge/house configuration; (2) violent excursions of the radar mast; (3) cantilevered bridge wings; and (4) hull fractures. Machinery areas, (1) economizer failures, (2) stern bearing failures, (3) condenser vibration, (4) general vibration in engineroom, (5) alarm panels, (6) pump problems, and (7) vibration in steering gear locations.
