Rotor Dynamics Self-Paced Video Course

This comprehensive course covers rotor dynamics analysis and bearings simulation for different types of rotors and bearings (journal, thrust. gas, rolling elements, etc). It covers rotor dynamic fundamentals, rotor balancing, basic design rules, analysis according to API and other standards, bearing simulation aspects and more.

The goal of this self-paced course is to provide engineers with a better understanding of rotor dynamics and bearing analysis at a theoretical level.

  • Introduction to rotor bearing systems design and analysis
  • Definition of terms related to rotor dynamics
  • History of rotor dynamics
  • Equivalent discrete systems
  • Jeffcott rotor analytical and numerical analysis
  • Effect of structural supports
  • Rolling element bearings
  • Gas bearings
  • Journal bearings (sleeve, fixed and tilting pads)
  • Thrust bearings
  • Basics of rotor dynamics and bearings calculation
  • Lateral analysis including static gravity, critical speed analysis, critical speed map, unbalance response, stability analysis, etc.
