Welcome to Vibrationdata Rotor Dynamics Page

 Dear Guest,
Writing tutorials and maintaining a website are expensive endeavors. I need your help to continue this effort. Your subscription will allow me to continue this site and to add new materials.

The software and tutorials require a username and password which are given by subscription. The subscription instructions are given below.
The subscription entitles the user to download all of the items on this page, as well as other Vibrationdata pages.

Thank you for your support.
Sincerely, Tom Irvine
