Problem 2.1 From Equation (2.24), the response is given by ( ) ( )0 0cos sinnt d dx t e a t b t= + . Thus ( ) ( )0 0 0 0cos sin sin cosn nt tn d d d d dx e a t b t e a t b t = + + + . When 0t = , ( ) 0 00x x a= = and ( ) 0 0 00 n dx x a b= = + . Hence ( )0 0 0n db x x= + . Now 1kgm = , 9 N mk = , 30 10 mx

(a) From Equation (2.34) it is clear that the response is proportional to the input force. Doubling input force doubles response. No change in phase.
(b) If the phase of the input force changes, the phase of the response changes by the same amount. Magnitude of response unchanged.
(c) If the forcing frequency is halved, r is halved. Using Equation (2.35) with 0 = ,

+ =Mq Kq 0 . Solving these equations for free vibrations leads to an eigenvalue problem of the form = Ku Mu where n = . This equation can be solved by
finding roots of the quadratic 22 15 9 0 + = . Alternatively the eigenvalue problem can be solved directly, see the MATLAB script Problem_02_11.m. Running this script gives the following output: 1st mode u2/u1 = 1.0856 2nd mode u2/u1 = 0.46058 1st natural frequency = 0.81097 rad/s 2nd natural frequency = 2.6158 rad/s 1st natural frequency = 0.12907 Hz 2nd natural frequency = 0.41632 Hz Problem 2.12 The radial force due to each out of balance mass is 2u uf m r= , Thus when the masses have rotated from the vertical by an angle , then in the vertical direction the sum of the forces is 2 2 2cos cos 2 cosvert u u uf m r m r m r t= + = , since
t = . (Refer to Figure 2.36). In the horizontal direction the sum of the forces is 2 2sin sin 0hz u uf m r m r= = . Thus there is no horizontal force and, so, in the
x direction the equation of motion becomes 22 cosumx kx m r t+ = .

These equations can be rearranged into the form =Ax + Bx 0 , and the eigenvalue problem can be solved as described by equations (3.48), (3.50), (3.51) and (3.52). The MATLAB script Problem_03_07.m gives the user the choice of solving either the characteristic equation or the eigenvalue problem to determine the system natural frequencies. Of course, both methods give the same numeric values for the frequencies which are as follows Solution of the characteristic equation Rotor speed = 0 rev/min Stiffness k1 = 1800000 N/m Stiffness k2 = 2200000 N/m Natural frequency = 28.8598 Hz Natural frequency = 36.5126 Hz Natural frequency = 56.3715 Hz

Rotor speed = 9550 rev/min Stiffness k1 = 2000000 N/m Stiffness k2 = 2000000 N/m Natural frequency = 29.0576 Hz Natural frequency = 33.8302 Hz Natural frequency = 60.7316 Hz

Note that because 0Ck = and gyroscopic effects are ignored the four equations are uncoupled from each other and can be solved independently of each other. Thus, letting 0

2rgdTk k= , 22rgdRk a k= and 0
rgdCk = . Again, the equations uncouple so that the
frequency equations are as above. Although these calculations are simple we have written a MATLAB script to carry them out. Thus The MATLAB script Problem_03_08.m determines the system natural frequencies for the three models, as follows. Bearing stiffness = 50000N/m Full model (Hz) Simply supported beam (Hz) Rigid rotor (Hz) 1st Mode: 13.2231 72.1384 13.4510 2nd mode: 34.9851 190.8604 35.5881 Bearing stiffness = 1000000N/m Full model (Hz) Simply supported beam (Hz) Rigid rotor (Hz) 1st Mode: 46.1998 72.1384 60.1549 2nd mode: 122.2332 190.8604 159.1549 Bearing stiffness = 100000000N/m Full model (Hz) Simply supported beam (Hz) Rigid rotor (Hz) 1st Mode: 71.6252 72.1384 601.5491 2nd mode: 189.5026 190.8604 1591.5494 These results show that when the bearing stiffness is low the system behaves like a

25
rigid rotor on flexible supports. When the bearing stiffness is high, the system behaves like a simply supported flexible beam. At the intermediate stiffness (1MN/m) only the full model adequately describes the system. Problem 3.9. The data of Table 3.4 gives the eigenvalues and eigenvectors for a rotor supported by (a) isotropic bearings and (b) anisotropic bearings. The natural frequencies of the system are determined from the eigenvalues, i.e. ( ) ( )imag 2n s = . The method to determine the shape of an orbit and direction of whirl is described in Section 3.6.1. Equation (3.55) requires amplitude and phase of the displacements in the x and y directions. From this the shape of the orbit can be determined (, given in Equation (3.60)) and the direction of whirl given by the sign of . The displacements in the x and y directions at the two ends of the rotor are given by Equation (3.61). The MATLAB script Problem_03_09.m analyses the isotropic and the anisotropic bearing case. The script begins by regenerates the data of Table 3.4 and then determines T (Equation (3.56)), T=H TT , and then the eigenvalues of H . From these eigenvalues the script determines and the direction if rotation. The MATLAB script Problem_03_09.m determines the system natural frequencies and values of , thereby giving the shape and direction of the orbit at various locations along the rotor.

For the anisotropic bearings, the orbits are elliptic and some of the modes are forward, some are backward and some are a mixture. For example the mode at frequency 47.414 Hz has a forward whirl at bearing 1, but backward at the centre of the rotor and at bearing 2.

We know that 30kgm = . The first and second equations are uncoupled from the

third and fourth equations and are independent of speed. Thus one natural frequency is independent of speed and from the 1st or 2nd equation is given by 1 2k m = .

Problem 3.11. The development in Section 3.6.1 is reworked with the eigenvalue i is j= and the corresponding mode. Consider first the calculation of the lengths of the semimajor and semiminor axes  the mode considered here will be the complex conjugate of the mode used in Section 3.6.1, and hence the matrix T will be post multiplied by
1 00 1
. Thus H will be as given in Section 3.6.1 and thus so will be the lengths of
the semimajor and semiminor axes. The only question that remains is to determine the direction of whirl. If u and v are the angle corresponding to the new mode with eigenvalue i is j= then the equivalent equations to Equation (3.59) is
( )( )
( )( )
( )( )( )coscos
coscosu iu i

and hence the same conclusions can be draw about the direction of whirl by making ( )v u negative. Thus in this case ( )0 v u< < implies forward whirl and
( ) 0v u < < implies backward whirl.
Problem 3.12 Since the rotor is stationary and the bearings are also isotropic we only need to consider motion in, say, the x direction. Using the stiffness formulae gives in Appendix 2, Table A2.4, System 6, and letting 1k gives

Note. Solving Problems 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.8, 5.9 and 5.11 requires a finite element analysis that allows shafts to be modelled and include gyroscopic effects, etc. Here we use the rotordynamics software developed to accompany this book, but other appropriate software can be used. Problem 5.1 Modelling this problem requires finite element analysis (FEA) and can only be solved using appropriate FEA software. Here MATLAB script Problem_05_01.m makes use the Rotordynamics Software package to model and analyse the system.

To determine the direction of the orbit we must compute This is done in Problem_05_05.m using the MATLAB function whirl.m which is provided in the Rotordynamics software package. The output from the script is k_sw = 11936.6207 N/m Critical damping = 21.9948 Ns/m Damping (Ns/m) Damped freq (Hz) Nat freq (Hz) zeta kappa 0 86.3755 86.3775 0.006754 1 0 86.3755 86.3775 0.006754 1 20 86.3739 86.3739 0.000613 1 20 86.3739 86.3811 0.012896 1 40 86.3690 86.3703 0.005529 1 40 86.3690 86.3846 0.019037 1

Note that (i) the value of 1 = implying that the forward or backward whirl orbit is circular, (2) that when 0c = and 20 Ns mc = one value of is negative, i.e. the system is unstable, as we expect, since the critical damping is 21.995 Ns m . Problem 5.6 We now introduce an error into Equation (5.97), the equations of motion for this system by changing the sign of sk . Thus we have

imaginary parts we have 2 0k m = and 0sk c + = . Note that these equations are identical to those of Problem 5.5, so the frequencies computed will be identical to

To determine the stability boundary, the real part of the solution is zero, and hence we let s j= . Under these conditions, c and c (where subscript c implies the critical value at the boundary of stability. Thus

Taking the positive sign in the imaginary equation, the limit of stability is when ( )2 2 = = c c d cc c r where dr c c= . Substituting this value of c into the real

Problem 5.8 This problem involves finite element analysis (FEA) and can only be solved using appropriate FEA software. Case 1. When the bearings are rigid, the bearings act in their nominal position, i.e. 0.1m from end of the shaft. There is no axial tension in the shaft. Case 2. When contact angle is 20 the point of contact of the bearing on the shaft is shifted by
( )0.035tan 20 0.0127m = = so that the bearings are now 0.0873m from the ends of the shaft.. A tensile force of 500N acts on the shaft. Case 3. If 0.0127m = a tensile force on the shaft can be applied to the shaft which will negate the effect of t
