Abstract

This paper uses two reduced-order methods to calculate the overall non-linear vibration response of a multi-mode rotor-squeeze film damper (SFD) bearing assembly. Good agreement has been found between their computed results and those calculated by the conventional Runge-Kutta-Merson method (RKMM), yet they require less than 5 per cent of the computing time consumed by the RKMM. They are applied to compute the vibration response, three-dimensional deflection shape and the overall vibrational kinetic energy of the rotor-bearing assembly. The assembly is simulated under various operating conditions including different unbalances, oil viscosities, static misalignments and damper factors. It is concluded that effective vibration control of a flexible rotor-SFD bearing assembly can be achieved when the vertical static eccentricity ratio of the SFD is set to a certain limit.
