SOFTWARE VALIDATION TEST REPORT FOR MAIN BEARING STIFFNESS

Benchmark for Main Bearing Stiffness Evaluation:

Example, Real life Compressor Bearing Stiffness Calculation from K. E. Atkins/R. X. Perez/D. M. Turner, “A Simple Procedure for Assessing Rotor Stability”, Third International Symposium on Transport Phenomena and Dynamics of Rotating Machinery, April 1990.

Test Performed By:

D. H. Rawal, M.E., M.S. (U.S.A.), DIRECTOR, Systech Consultancy Services, Mumbai, India, Sr. Member ASME

Bearing Stiffness Evaluation Program Verification This section presents a comparison of the program-generated solution with a known solution of a selected benchmark problem. This provides a confirmation of the adequacy of the program for Bearing Stiffness Evaluation.

Benchmark Problem

program for Bearing Stiffness Evaluation. Benchmark Problem Bearing Stiffness Coefficients Shown in Table 1 obtained by

Bearing Stiffness Coefficients Shown in Table 1 obtained by K. E. Atkins/R. X. Perez/D. M. Turner are compared with results from Systech Consultancy Services [SCS] Bearing Stiffness Evaluation Program [Refer to Table 3: Benchmark Problem for Journal Bearing Stiffness Calculation on next page].

The results obtained from show good correspondence with those provided by K. E. Atkins/R. X. Perez/D. M. Turner.

Note:

* Total Rotor Weight = 500 lbs in Table 1 Data of K. E. Atkins/R. X. Perez/D. M. Turner Paper is for 2 Bearings; while Table 3 above is for 1 Bearing; i.e., Static Load = 500 lbs / 2 Bearings = 250 lbs.
