With ROSS you can assembly a model by defining some elements and then creating a rotor. We start with the shaft elements:

steel = rs.Material(name="Steel", rho=7810, E=211e9, G_s=81.2e9)
# Creating a list of shaft elements
L = 0.25
i_d = 0
o_d = 0.05
N_elem = 6

shaft_elements = [
    rs.ShaftElement(
        L=L,
        idl=i_d,
        odl=o_d,
        material=steel,
        shear_effects=True,
        rotary_inertia=True,
        gyroscopic=True,
    )
    for _ in range(N_elem)
]

The disks elements can be defined as:

disk = rs.DiskElement(
    n=2,
    m=32.58,
    Ip=0.178,
    Id=0.329,
    tag="Disk"
)

Now we define the bearing elements:

bearing0 = rs.BearingElement(
    n=0, 
    kxx=[0.5e6, 1.0e6, 2.5e6],
    kyy=[1.5e6, 2.0e6, 3.5e6],
    cxx=[0.5e3, 1.0e3, 1.5e3],
    frequency=[0, 1000, 2000],
)
bearing1 = rs.BearingElement(
    n=5, 
    kxx=[0.5e6, 1.0e6, 2.5e6],
    kyy=[1.5e6, 2.0e6, 3.5e6],
    cxx=[0.5e3, 1.0e3, 1.5e3],
    frequency=[0, 1000, 2000],
)
bearings = [bearing0, bearing1]

Finally, we assemble these elements in a rotor:

rotor = rs.Rotor(shaft_elements=shaft_elements, disk_elements=[disk], bearing_elements=bearings)
rotor.plot_rotor()
