Rotordynamics involves the study of the unique dynamic behavior associated with high speed rotating machinery. Topics include critical speed, stability, and unbalance response analysis including gyroscopic, cross-coupled stiffness, and flexible support effects. The mechanics of supporting components including fluid-film bearings, roller-element bearings, magnetic bearings, squeeze-film dampers, and seals are explored, as well as their effects on rotor performance. Finite-element modeling of rotor-bearing systems is introduced. Practical industrial considerations include machine vibration signatures and rotor balancing. Instrumentation, measurements, and experimental identification of the dynamic properties of rotating systems are also explored.
