Heavy industry, which generally uses turbomachines, often uses both technologies to perform high-performance vibration monitoring of its production tool. Vibration analysis is one of the means used to monitor the health of rotating machinery in operation. This is part of a policy of forecast maintenance of the industrial production tool. This work is part of the monitoring and diagnosis of rotating machines by vibration analysis taking as an example the X205 circulation fan. Numerical simulation was done to test the capabilities and limitations of a dynamic simulation. The modelling of vibratory phenomena is developed using SolidWorks software to perform a dynamic simulation of the 3D model. The numerical simulations were performed to find the effect of different types of defects, such as defect of unbalance fin fan and bolt joint looseness, on the output of system. The numerical results were confirmed either by experimentally using employing results available in the open literature that existent at factory of cement plant (SCHS) and a good agreement was observed. The proposed and derived model has demonstrated the viability of dynamic simulation approach to rotating machines by vibration analysis and serves as a significant alternative approach to the direct experimentation on the same systems in terms of cost and time.
