Engineering SEMINARS


International Online Seminar & Short Course

in Rotating Machinery

dedicated to participants from:

Presentation of the Theoretical Background
including Many Practical Applications and Case Studies

Date: October 23-26, 2023


Seminar Language: ENGLISH

A cooperation between RBTS, USA and Laschet Consulting, Germany


This International Seminar & Short Course is dedicated to engineers and technical managers who are in­volved in ROTATING MACHINERY DYNAMICS design, operation, maintenance, diagnosis, and trouble shooting, with emphasis on machinery rotor dynamics (LATERAL VIBRA­TION analysis), drive train dynamics (TORSIONAL VIBRA­TION analysis), and bearing systems (FLUID-FILM BEARINGS).

Course coverage of the field is illustrated by the presen­tation of real life case histories and the application of advanced technologies for the modeling, analyses, and trouble shooting real life bearings and vibration problems.

International Rotordynamic Seminars 2004-2015

This seminar is a TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER SEMINAR and is there­fore dedicated to all engineers interested in the dynamics of rotating machinery, independent of the use of a software tool. No previous experiences in rotor­dynamics are required – just register and visit the seminar to under­stand the world of vibra­tions, and above all how to solve and avoid vibration problems in rotating machinery.

In the previous years most of the seminar attendees for our in-person seminars in Cologne (Germany) came from Europe as well as from the Middle East, and India. Thus, this seminar is really an INTER­NA­TIONAL event; you should not miss this pro­fessional course of great repu­tation and lively exchange of expe­riences among the partici­pants.


This is the structure of the seminar with the associated subjects per day.


  • All sessions are in English language only. The seminar is an ONLINE & LIVE event (i.e. held in real time on the Internet) supported by Cisco Webex.
  • Schedule: Mon-Thu / Start: 14:00 = 2:00 p.m. / End: 18:00 = 6:00 p.m. (UTC+1 = CET)
