Title: Dynamic Analysis of Turbine-Generator Foundations
Author(s): F. Aboul-Ella and M. Novak
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 79-102
Keywords: amplitude; concrete piles; concrete slabs; dynamic structural analysis; foundations; frames; machine bases; soils; vibration.
Abstract:A theoretical approach was developed and programmed to analyze dynamic response of turbomachinery frame foundations supported by piles or a foundation slab. The study investigates interaction of all components of the system, i.e. flexible rotors, visco-elastic oil film, space frame, flexible mat, piles and soil. The effect of the foundation on vibration amplitudes of the frame and rotors is demonstrated.
