Bob Eisenmann, Sr. passed away on 02 July after a battle with cancer. Many of you may have experienced his training and some may have purchased the book Machinery Malfunction Diagnosis and Correction Vibration Analysis and Troubleshooting for the Process Industries which he coauthored with his son.
His passing is a great loss to our industry.
I was privileged to teach a number of Category IV courses alongside Bob, and he created the majority of the content related to journal bearings and rotor dynamics. He was a wealth of knowledge and experience that spanned many years.
Fortunately, his book (and training in its various forms at Mobius and GE) will live on as a record of his life's work and achievement.
A great loss for the community.
Sad news indeed.
Never had the honour to meet the man but by just reading his book identified just how much knowledge and work experience Bob had.
It is so sad to hear this new. I have learned a lot from Bob's Book.
