Dr. JOHN M. VANCE was professor of mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University, retiring in 2007. He received his PhD degree from The University of Texas at Austin. His book Rotordynamics of Turbomachinery has sold more than 3,000 copies and is used by turbomachinery engineers around the world. He is an inventor on several patents relating to rotating machinery and vibration reduction. His patented TAMSEAL has been retrofitted to solve vibration problems in a number of high-pressure industrial compressors. He is an ASME Fellow and a registered professional engineer in the state of Texas.
