In this paper a pre-study on using COMSOL Multiphysics for rotordynamic analysis is presented. It is concluded that it is possible to use COMSOL Multiphysics to perform rotordynamical analysis. However, there are no standard environment for rotordynamics, hence the user has to extend the structural model with the rotordynamics effect such as gyroscopic effect and rotordynamical coefficients. By using a standard finite element code for rotordynamical analysis, one can take the benefit of using detailed model of structures and rotating component in rotordynamical analysis.
