Effect of Roller Bearing Clearance on Nonsynchronous Vibration of a Rotor
Application ID: 55911
Bearing clearances should be kept minimum to avoid non-synchronous vibration of a rotor. However, a tight clearance reduces the durability of the bearing. This example illustrates modeling of the vibration induced by nonlinear contact for different radial clearances.
It is shown that non-synchronous vibrations start dominating when the bearing clearance is increased.
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.
