Job description

Your responsibilities will primarily be to solve problems related to vibration and acoustics. A typical assignment would be that the client contacts us and present a concern regarding vibration in a pipe or for example a compressor, wanting Momentum Technologies to look further into the case and perform an assessment of the root cause to the vibration and whether it is hazardous or not. Through dialogue with the client you will familiarize with the case and prepare a survey and measurements, which often then is at an offshore installation. You will then go offshore bringing the applicable measurement equipment. Standard measurement equipment are accelerometers, strain gauges and pulsation sensors. In addition, we provide special techniques were vibration modes and vibration measurements are med with video-based technology. For more information, see our YouTube-channel.

When returned from the survey you will process and analyse the measurement results, concluding of the root cause and further assess whether the vibration will imply tension that in turn may lead to fatigue and failure. Different tools are used for these analyses. Among other is own proprietary tools used, as well as Matlab, Comsol Multiphysices, Labview, Excel and specialized software for OMA, EMA and ODS analyses. Being comfortable with mathematics and physics will be valuable at this stage. You will summarize the assignment and conclusions in a report that explains what and why the vibration occurs, and most important whether this is a problem that should be corrected, and in that case what measures that would solve the problem.
