About this Book
This second edition with about 25% updated and new content offers wide-ranging coverage of fundamental rotordynamics in order to provide engineers with the necessary knowledge to eliminate various vibration problems.
The authors provide a classification of rotating shaft systems and general coverage of key ideas common to all branches of rotordynamics. They also provide a unique analysis of dynamical problems, such as nonlinear rotordynamics, self-excited vibration, nonstationary vibration, and flow-induced oscillations. Nonlinear resonances are discussed in detail, as well as methods for shaft stability and various theoretical derivations and computational methods for analyzing rotors to determine and correct vibrations. New to this edition are case studies and problems, as well as two topics of high importance:
- Various methods of vibration suppression
- A new chapter on magnetic bearings providing fundamental knowledge and enabling readers to realize simple magnetic bearings by hand in the laboratory.
