Effect of asymmetries of stiffness and mass on parametric instabilities of hollow rotor system
The present work aims to understand the influence of the asymmetries on the dynamics of the hollow rotor system. The study comprises the analytical study through the extended Lagrangian Hamiltonian approach and validation conducted with the simulation study through the bond graphs. This study involves an investigation of the dynamics of the hollow rotor system through two case studies. First case study considers a hollow rotor system with small asymmetry in stiffness while another study considers a hollow rotor system with asymmetry in mass. The lumped analysis involves the development of a mathematical model by considering the symmetry breaking of a hollow rotor caused by mass or stiffness. The study shows good agreement in simulation and analytical results.
