Instructed by
Leading Industry Expert:
Malcolm Leader
Malcolm E. Leader, P.E. is a Turbomachinery Consultant and Owner of Applied Machin-
ery Dynamics in Dickinson, Texas. He is currently involved in the design, testing, modi-
fication, 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 rotordy-
namic programs.

Why You Should Attend


This course is for beginning and intermediate level engineers in the petro-
leum, chemical, power, and gas industries or anyone interested in the dynam-
ics of rotating machinery. The emphasis is on turbomachines such as tur-
bines, compressors, expanders, motors, pumps, and generators. The intent is
to understand the rotordynamics of these machines and their subcomponents
to help select, analyze, troubleshoot and repair them for maximum reliability
and minimum vibration problems. This is not a math intensive course. Case
histories and several workshops for hands-on evaluation of actual machines
will be given.

CANCELLATION POLICY
Written registration fee refund requests (by email, fax, or postal mail) must be received in the Turbomachinery Laboratory (TL) Office by midnight on
the posted cut-off date. A $250.00 administration fee will be deducted from the refund amount. Late cancellations (after the cancellation date) will be
reviewed on a case-by-case basis for personal hardships (death, injury, or illness of the attendee or an immediate family member). Refunds may also
be extended for acts of nature (hurricanes, etc.) and national emergencies (9/11, etc.). The TL does not refund for business decisions by the
attendee’s employer such as: job reassignment, plant emergencies, etc. However, we encourage substituting another employee so the attendees’
company receives the benefit of training. In the event of a “no-show” cancellation, short-course materials will be forwarded to the absent attendee.
The State of Texas does not allow the TL to extend credit to individuals or companies. Therefore, we cannot apply registration fees for a missed
course to another subsequent course.
The TL reserves the right to cancel any short course and return all fees in the event of insufficient registration. We reserve the right to cancel due to
unforeseen circumstances. The TL will not be responsible for any losses incurred by the registrants, including but not limited to airline cancellation
charges or hotel deposits.
Please check box to acknowledge and accept above refund policy. Box must be marked to proceed with registration process.
