Comparison of Campbell Plots Using Different Rotor Interfaces
Application ID: 102611
Different types of elements can be used for modeling a rotor, depending on the level of complexity and the type of the system being modeled. The modeling steps and representation of the results will vary with the type of idealization. In this tutorial model, an eigenfrequency analysis is performed on a stepped rotor, using three different physics interfaces for rotordynamics: Solid Rotor; Solid Rotor, Fixed Frame; and Beam Rotor. The resulting Campbell plots from these interfaces are compared with each other. The model also helps in understanding the different steps involved when using each interface.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
