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.
