  • AbstractIn this paper, a new method for the balancing of rotor-bearing systems supported on fluid film bearings is proposed. The influence coefficients necessary for balancing are calculated using a novel simulation method called the Numerical Assembly Technique. The advantages of this approach are quasi-analytical solutions for the equations of motion of complex rotor-bearing systems and very low computation times. The Numerical Assembly Technique is extended by speed-dependent stiffness and damping coefficients approximated by the short-bearing theory to model the behavior of rotor systems supported on fluid film bearings. The rotating circular shaft is modeled according to the Rayleigh beam theory. The Numerical Assembly Technique is used to calculate the steady-state harmonic response, influence coefficients, eigenvalues, and the Campbell diagram of the rotor. These values are compared to simulations with the Finite Element Method to show the accuracy of the procedure. Two numerical examples of rotor-bearing systems are successfully balanced by the proposed balancing method.
