Annotation |
Rotating parts of structures, shafts of energy and transportation machinery parts. A key initiative of the dynamic load factor, rotor disbalance. The dynamic calculation methods are analysed. The rotor balancing methods are considered.. |

Goals and objectives of the course in terms of competences and skills |
Indicating the problems and calculation methods for rotor machines. In order to achieve this aim the following tasks should be fulfilled: 1st The assessment of the rotor starting and stopping process for the system with two degrees of freedom; 2nd Rotor dynamics for the system with four degrees of freedom. |

Learning outcomes and assessment |
