The course covers DNV's theoretical and practical experience within the fields of shaft alignment, whirling and axial vibrations and relates these to good practice for carrying out calculations utilising the Nauticus Machinery Shaft Alignment tool. Basic theory will be taught, and the course will give an insight into new technology gained by DNV through several comprehensive research and troubleshooting projects.
The main objective is to learn best practice for shaft alignment by learning theory, analysis methods and use of the software. Each component in the system (propeller, bearing, couplings, gear, engines) will be covered in detail with extensive presentation material, know-how and experience from state-of-the-art research projects.
Naval architects, designers, ship yards and approval engineers with no or limited experience using Nauticus Machinery, but with some experience within the field of shaft alignment.
