Abstract:

Experimental and theoretical analyses of external pressure bearings were conducted. The effect of shaft rotation on the performance of the bearings was considered. Four types of rotation instabilities with effects on the dynamic behavior of the rotor-bearing system are discussed critical speed, half-frequency whirl, fractional-frequency whirl, and pneumatic hammer.
