Dynamic Analysis of Composite Rotors


An outline of formulation based on a layerwise beam theory for unbalance response and stability analysis of a multi mass, multi bearing composite rotor mounted on fluid film bearings is presented. Disc gyroscopics and rotary inertia effects are accounted for. Material damping is also taken into account. The layerwise theory is compared with conventionally used equivalent modulus beam theory. Some interesting case studies are presented. The effect of various parameters on dynamic behavior and stability of a composite rotor is presented.
