The article discusses the vibration problems of a pump. It defines vibration as mechanical oscillations or the repetitive motion of an object on equilibrium point that is caused by an excitation force. It states that vibration is caused by excitation force. According to the author, repeating forces result to the vibration problems of centrifugal pumps.
