Vibrations of Rotating Machinery
This book opens with an explanation of the vibrations of a single degree-of-freedom (dof) system for all beginners. Subsequently, vibration analysis of multi-dof systems is explained by modal analysis. Mode synthesis modeling is then introduced for system reduction, which aids understanding in a simplified manner of how complicated rotors behave. Rotor balancing techniques are offered for rigid and flexible rotors through several examples. Consideration of gyroscopic influences on the rotordynamics is then provided and vibration evaluation of a rotor-bearing system is emphasized in terms of forward and backward whirl rotor motions through eigenvalue (natural frequency and damping ratio) analysis. In addition to these rotordynamics concerning rotating shaft vibration measured in a stationary reference frame, blade vibrations are analyzed with Coriolis forces expressed in a rotating reference frame. Other phenomena that may be assessed in stationary and rotating reference frames include stability characteristics due to rotor internal damping and instabilities due to asymmetric shaft stiffness and thermal unbalance behavior.
Focuses on comprehensive evaluation of three key elements of natural frequency; resonance severity; and stability margin, through the use of examples with figures and tablesProvides a consistent approach to bridge rotor shaft vibrations featuring gyroscopic effects in an inertial coordinate frame and blade vibrations under Coriolis forces acting in a rotating reference frameHelps to understand applying accurately reduced models to identify the solution of rotor vibration problems
