To compute final correction masses for multispeed, multiplane balancing of rotating machinery, a least-squares computing procedure has been developed. This procedure uses plain least squares to minimize the rms residual vibration of selected points on the machinery foundation, and then uses weighted least squares to reduce the maximum residual vibration. The computations have been programmed for a digital computer.
