Rotordynamics Short Course Instructor
Leader is a Turbomachinery Consultant and Owner of Applied Machinery Dynamics in Dickinson, Texas. He is currently involved in the design, testing, modification, and installation of rotating equipment. He spends time doing theoretical design audits and working in the field implementing changes and overseeing installations. Mr. Leader has written several papers on the subjects of experimental rotordynamics, bearing design, design audits for rotating equipment, and practical implementation of rotordynamic programs.
The Turbo Lab’s Rotordynamics course, offered each spring, is for beginning- and intermediate-level engineers in the petroleum, chemical, power and gas industries. It provides a basis for understanding the rotordynamics—the behavior and diagnosis— of turbines, compressors, expanders, motors, pumps and generators and their subcomponents to help select, analyze, troubleshoot and repair them for maximum reliability. The course is packed with case studies and workshops for hands-on evaluation of actual machines.
Malcolm Leader has instructed the course for ten years.
