Squeeze film damper effect on vibration of an unbalanced flexible rotor using harmonic balance method

Abstract :

In this paper, an effective tool based on harmonic balance method to assess the forced response of these systems under parametric changes is developed. A flexible rotor with multiple masses supported on a squeeze film damper at one end is investigated and modeled using finite element method. The forced response of this asymmetrically supported system is calculated using the harmonic balance method with a predictor-corrector procedure by changing unidirectional loads, stiffness of centering spring of the damper and the gyroscopic effects of the disks. It is observed that under large unbalance forces, jump phenomenon occurs due to the nonlinear forces of SFD which indicates the presence of multiple harmonics within the response of the SFD operating at high eccentricity ratios and shows the insensitivity of the damper to surrounding gyroscopic variation.
