Non-Linear Vibration Response of Rotor-Shaft System Part I: Influence Of Bearing Clearance

Tegoeh Tjahjowidodo, Komang Bagiasna, Zainal Abidin & Irwanto


Abstract. An analytical model of a rotor shaft vibration system subjected to rotor unbalance and shaft misalignment excitation forces has been developed. Those excitation forces are transmitted to a bearing housing through a roller bearing housing where the vibration response is measured. The non-linearity of the bearing stiffness due to the bearing clearance reveals some specific vibration signatures, which can be utilized for bearing, wear identification. The theoretical results obtained in this study are compared with those obtained from experiment.
