About the Edition

An experimental facility was developed to investigate the rotordynamic phenomena of rotating machinery during subcritical, resonant and supercritical operation. The behavior of the rotor was characterized throughout the operating range. The facility consists of a Bentley Nevada Corporation Rotor Kit integrated with a computerized data acquisition and control process. A LabVIEW Virtual Instrument was designed to collect, analyze and display rotor position and rotor displacement information. Experiments conducted included construction of Cascade plots, analytic prediction of the first lateral mode and demonstration of synchronous whirl due to a mass imbalance; during which, backward whirl was experienced.

The main results of an experimental campaign conducted in the Cavitating Pump Rotordynamic Test Facility at Alta S.p.A. are presented.

The experiments have been carried out on two different axial. BRIAN T. MURPHY, PhD, PE, is a senior research scientist with the Center for Electromechanics at The University of Texas at Austin.

He is also president of RMA, Inc., which develops and markets the Xlrotor suite of rotordynamic analysis software used worldwide by industry and academia. Imparts the theory and analysis regarding the dynamics of rotating machinery in order to design such rotating devices as turbines, jet engines, pumps and power-transmission shafts.

Takes into account the forces acting upon machine structures, bearings and related components. Provides numerical techniques for analyzing and understanding rotor systems with examples of actual designs.

The whirl excitation generates finite-speed propagation and resonance phenomena in the two-phase flow within the inducer. These, in turn, lead to a complex dependence of the lateral rotordynamic fluid forces on the excitation frequency, the void fraction, the average size of the cavitation bubbles, and the turbopump operating conditions.

The second part focuses on the theoretical modeling, experimental analysis, and practical control of cavitation-induced fluid-dynamic and rotordynamic instabilities of hydraulic turbomachinery, with special emphasis on cavitating turbopumps (cavitation surge, rotating cavitation, higher order cavitation surge, rotordynamic whirl forces).

Air-induced force generated in seals is one key factor on the stability of the rotor system. In this paper, a novel negative dislocated seal (NDS) was developed in respect of dislocated bearing theory, to reduce hydrodynamic pressure effect and air-induced force and improve rotor stability as well.

A test rig was built to test rotordynamic characteristics and rotor stability of the NDS. The content of the present book is in two major parts as title of the book also suggests, the first is the modeling and analysis of rotor phenomena, and the second is the condition monitoring of. The experimental determination of stiffness and damping coefficients at two different test rigs is described including undertaken modernization of the experimental environment.

Test results on leakage and rotordynamic coefficients are shown for the three-teeth-on-stator staggered labyrinth seal with the tooth radial clearance of mm. Rotordynamics, also known as rotor dynamics, is a specialized branch of applied mechanics concerned with the behavior and diagnosis of rotating structures.

It is commonly used to analyze the behavior of structures ranging from jet engines and steam turbines to auto engines and computer disk its most basic level, rotor dynamics is concerned with one or more mechanical structures.

This paper analyzed how the shunt injection affects the seal rotordynamic characteristics, and presented an improved impedance method based on unbalanced synchronous excitation to identify the rotordynamic coefficients of.

Introduction. Two important issues of the automotive turbochargers in the rotordynamics are resonance and instability of the rotor. Both have a common harmful effect that causes damages of the turbochargers during the operation.

After a brief review of the fundamental aspects of cavitation relevant to the operation of high-performance inducers and turbopumps, the article summarizes their application to the analysis of pumping systems, illustrates the scaling of cavitation phenomena from model tests to full-scale operation, describes the occurrence of flow-induced instabilities in turbomachinery, and.

With its twenty-year heritage in cavitation and with the realization of the Cavitating Pump Rotordynamic Test Facility (CPRTF), SITAEL has gained a leading position and unique experimental capabilities for the characterization of unsteady flow phenomena and rotordynamic forces in rocket propellant turbopumps under fluid dynamic and thermal cavitation similarity.

The purpose of this book is to give a basic understanding of rotor dynamics phenomena with the help of simple rotor models and subsequently, the modern analysis methods for real life rotor systems. This background will be helpful in the identification of rotor-bearing system parameters and its use in futuristic model-based condition monitoring.

ABSTRACT. The focus of this literature survey and review is model reduction methods and their application to rotor dynamic systems. Rotor dynamic systems require careful consideration in their dynamic models as they include unsymmetric stiffness, localized nonproportional damping, and frequency-dependent gyroscopic effects.
