Vibrations in Rotating Machinery 2020


Since 1976, Vibrations in Rotating Machinery conferences have successfully brought industry and academia together to advance state-of-the-art research in dynamics of rotating machinery.

Join industrial and academic experts from different countries to discuss the challenges in rotordynamics, rub, whirl, instability and more. This is your chance to present your work, hear from contemporary leading researchers, exchange ideas from the field and updates on the latest research findings. 

Whether you are from industry or academia, involved in transport, power, process or manufacturing engineering, VIRM 12 will provide the latest R&D and useful guidance.
