Responses to "What was particularly helpful about the course?"

  • Got to know about DyRoBeS
  • Hands-on use of analysis software
  • The course gave a basic overview of the DyRoBeS software which was all that could be done in one day. The explanation of the sub elements, levels and shafts was important and well explained. Touching on the most used post processors was worth the time.
  • Torsional exercise
  • Having hands-on practice with demo ver.


Responses to "What was particularly helpful about the course?" for the hands-on day using DyRoBeS

  • Pair analysis with case studies - discuss model results, indications, design changes, etc.
  • I like the hands on part of training courses. If you can fit more into one day or provide some additional homework to do it would be helpful.
  • More time.
  • More exercises - but same pace - more days.


Responses to "Now that you have completed this course, what additional training (if any) would be helpful?"

  • I had taken a training course in the past where everyone took a real example from their work and worked on it during the class. It was very interesting to see what others were doing as well as giving a bunch of examples of the problem solving methods.
  • Practice


Other Comments/Feedback

  • I won't be using the DyRoBeS software in the future since we have Excel Rotor at my place of work. It might be helpful to find out which program most of the people in the Rotordynamics course use and then give a training course on that software.
  • Very helpful. Great explanations.
