The Practical Vibration Primer

The Practical Vibration Primer, by Charles Jackson, was the first book on machinery vibrations written expressly for the user. It deals with the basics - alignment, balancing, and vibration of machines. Even though the book is over 25 years old, it contains material not presented in other publications and is therefore considered a classic. The Primer is filled with ideas on good machine practice that will help the user not only understand what is important, but what responses occur when trouble occurs.

The first chapter underscores the importance of vibration analysis in the field of predictive maintenance and root cause failure analysis.
