Example 17 - Features of Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors - Isotropic BearingsΒΆ

This example is based on Example 5.9.1 from [Friswell, 2010].

Isotropic Bearings. A 1.5-m-long shaft, shown in Figure 5.27,
has a diameter of 0.05 m. The disks are keyed to the shaft at 0.5 and 1 m from
one end. The left disk is 0.07 m thick with a diameter of 0.28 m; the right disk
is 0.07 m thick with a diameter of 0.35 m. For the shaft, E = 211 GN/m2 and
G = 81.2 GN/m2. There is no internal shaft damping. For both the shaft and the
disks, p = 7,810 kg/m3. The shaft is supported by identical bearings at its ends.Constant

These bearings are isotropic and have a stiffness of 1 MN/m in both the x and
y directions. The bearings contribute no additional stiffness to the rotational
degrees of freedom and there is no damping or cross-coupling in the bearings.
Create an FE model of the shaft using six Timoshenko beam elements and 
investigate the dynamics of the machine at 0 and 4,000 rev/min.
