We are delighted to announce that the renowned British Gear Association Gear Box Systems Problems and Solution has been developed into a live interactive online training day.

This training will be held by Jarek Rosinski at Transmission Dynamics via Google Meet on 16th December 2020. Please see below for course information and agenda for the day.

If you would like to register, please email Kirsty in the BGA office

Fees – £100 member / £150 non member.



Seminar Programme
Many reliability and wear problems in transmission systems are not directly associated with the design of the components themselves but are the result of system dynamics: starting and transient torques, self-excited vibration and the dynamics of the motor or engine and of the driven machine.  Particular characteristics of bearings, couplings and gearbox mounting can also significantly affect system performance.  Typical problems and solutions are discussed and instrumentation for troubleshooting noise, bearing failures, vibrations and in-service load measurement demonstrated.

The seminar will cover:Tackling Unexplained Bearing and Gear Element FailuresThe Dynamics of Gearbox SystemsGearbox Noise and VibrationProblem Solving using State of the Art Data Acquisition & Analysis TechniquesWind Turbine Gearboxes: Type Testing, Instrumentation & Early Stage TroubleshootingGear Alignment Instrumentation (KHβ, Kϒ)In-Service Unattended Load (Torque) Data Collection TechniquesCase Studies in Rail, Marine Propulsion, Renewables, Automotive and Heavy IndustriesState of Art Condition Monitoring TechniquesThis is a live interactive session with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and interact with the tutor.
