  • Active Control of Rotor System Supports, O.Fomina, N.Kikot, M.Leontev, 2008
    active support Compressor and fan test stands are widely used in design and development of modern Gas Turbine Engines. The test procedures include wide ranges of operating speeds. This operating requires avoidance of the transmission rotor critical speeds. The problem may find its solution in the gearbox tuning or the elements replacement but this approach is expensive and time consuming. Also the wide range of speeds does not allow introduction of flexible damping supports because often the operating includes the both first and second critical speeds. The resulting vibrations hurt the facility reliability and life.

  • Modeling and analysis of the balancing bench in field of dynamics, 2009
    model of balancing bench In software DYNAMICS R4 was created a model of this balancing bench (which produced by the Diamech Co. and mounted in Gasturboservice Co., Ltd) to obtain estimation of the natural frequencies. This bench was modeled as spatial system. The calculations were made in two versions – without the rotor and with the rotor, set in the cradle.

  • Contrarotating shafts, 2009
    gte with contrarotating shafts This work is a part of the performance and life enhancement of the T53 engine industrial application project. The simulating model provides numerical study of vibration response of the T53 engine incorporated in the Orenda Aerospace Corporation 1.2MWe power generator. Consideration of the rotors sliding changes the frequency spectrum for direct and reverse precessions. As far as the rotors rotations are of opposite directions the rotors unbalances consequently excite the resonance vibrations corresponding to frequencies of the both rotors.

  • Oil Whirl and Whip, 2009
    oil whirl and whip Oil whirl is a common problem with journal bearings used on machines equipped with pressure lubrication systems operating at relatively high speeds.
    If the shaft is moved off center due to load, eccentricity, or imbalance, then the clearance on one side of the bearing will be greater than that on the other side.
    As the lubricant rotates at less than 50% of shaft speed, it must squeeze through the narrow area where the shaft is closest to the bearing. The average speed of the lubricant increases inside the gap and slows down when it leaves the gap. Such a speeding up and slowing down process creates turbulence on both sides of the gap, and a vortex develops in the high-pressure lubricant zone.

  • Rotordynamic Analysis of 120MW Turbine Generator, 2007
    120mw turbine It is a calculation example of the power generator on 5 elliptical bearings. Rotation speed is 3600 rpm. Initial model of the generator was built on beams, inertial elements and journal bearings which are modeled by flexible links. Using Xlpocket and XLTltpad nonsymmetrical stiffness and damping matrixes for all journal bearings (USA, Rotating Machinery Technology, Inc.) were calculated. Frequencies, mode shapes at 3600 rpm and stability maps was obtained. Critical speeds were calculated.

  • T53 engine Modelling and analysis, 2006
    t-53 This work is a part of the performance and life enhancement of the T53 engine industrial application project. The simulating model in this stage provides numerical study of vibration response of the T53 engine incorporated in the Orenda Aerospace Corporation 1.2 MW power generator. The multilevel model includes three sub-systems (sub-models) - gas producer rotor (GP rotor), power turbine rotor (PT rotor) and case with mounting. Each sub-system includes a few smaller sub-systems. The model incorporates data of the engine layout, assembly and parts drawings, used materials performance, etc. Accuracy of the model was checked by matching the model mass and inertial data and by comparison of calculated critical speeds with the available test data. It is worth mentioning that the earlier analysis investigated the aero version of the engine differing with the industrial one by structures of the engine support and the front compressor support. Due to this difference the calculation results were not absolutely equal to the test data but the main performance of the sub-systems were in a good correspondence.
