3.4 Design and analysis of a support with a flexible ring
We assume here that by this stage the engine dynamics parametric study is completed, needed stiffnesses, damping and flexible support displacements d0 are determined.
The damper support design is to consider some specific details:
- This manual permits a choice of the flexible ring dimensions meeting the flexibility and strength requirements.
- There are no available methods of damping calculation, or determining needed throttle holes diameters and number.
- The damping support development and tuning should be preliminary performed in a test rig.
- Final checking of the support workability is an engine test exclusively.
