A guide to bearing dynamic coefficients in rotordynamics that includes various computation methods
Bearing Dynamic Coefficients in Rotordynamics delivers an authoritative guide to the fundamentals of bearing and bearing dynamic coefficients containing various computation methods. Three of the most popular and state-of-the-art methods of determining coefficients are discussed in detail. The computation methods covered include an experimental linear method created by the author, and numerical linear and nonlinear methods using the finite element method. The author—a renowned expert on the topic—presents the results and discusses the limitations of the various methods.
Accessibly written, the book provides a clear analysis of the fundamental phenomena in rotor dynamics and includes many illustrations from numerical analysis and the results of the experimental research. Filled with practical examples, the book also includes a companion website hosting code used to calculate the dynamic coefficients of journal bearings. This important book:
