Introduction to Dynamics of Rotor-Bearing Systems B-904

This book is written as an introduction to rotor-bearing dynamics for practicing engineers and students who are involved in rotor dynamics and bearing designs. The goal is to provide a step-by-step approach to the understanding of fundamentals of rotor-bearing dynamics. Therefore, the emphasis is on the basic principles, phenomena, modeling, theory, and interpretations of the results.

Introduction to Dynamics of Rotor-bearing Systems includes numerous examples, from a single-degree-of-freedom system to complicated industrial rotating machinery, which serve to illustrate fundamental dynamic behaviors. The concepts in the text are reinforced by parametric studies and numerous illustrative examples and figures.

Sample contents include:

  • Introduction to Basic Concepts
  • Coordinate Systems and Rotor Motion
  • The Laval-Jeffcott Rotor Model
  • Rotating Disk Equations and Rigid Rotor Dynamics
  • Shaft Finite Element Equations
  • Bearings and Other Interconnection Components
  • System Governing Equations and Analyses
  • Torsional Vibration
  • Balancing
