Example 10 - Example of rotor connected by a rigid mechanical coupling with parallel misalignment.ΒΆ

In this example, we use a finite element (FE) model to represent the rotor that is available as a test rig in LMest - UFU for demonstrating the results obtained when we have a misalignment defect present in the system. The system is composed of a flexible steel shaft with \(0.914 m\) length and \(0.019 m\) diameter (it is modeled using Timoshenko beam-element), two rigid discs (both of steel with \(0.150 m\) diameter and \(0.020 m\) thickness) and two self alignment ball bearings. A model updating procedure was used to obtain a representative FE model for the numerical simulations presented in this work. In this sense, a heuristic optimization technique (Differential Evolution) was used to determine the unknown parameters of the model, namely the stiffness and damping coefficients of the bearings, besides the proportional damping.
