**On the dynamics of a nonlinear rotor-floating ring bearing system

Today, in high speed applications the rotors are commonly supported by hydrodynamic journal bearings. One typical config-

uration of journal bearings incorporated in automotive turbochargers is the floating ring bearing. Rotors supported by floating

ring bearings have many advantages, regarding costs and power consumption for example. However, they might become un-

stable with increasing speed of rotation. At the onset of instability both the perfectly balanced and unbalanced rotor undergo

self-excited vibrations which could cause the mechanical breakdown of the system. The ”oil whip”-phenomenon, very well

known from the investigations of the plain journal bearing occurs here in a different form. At the stability limit the rotor

begins either oscillating with about the half of the ring speed or the half of the ring speed plus the half of the journal speed

depending on the system parameters.

For this reason a rotor-floating ring bearing model is presented showing the mentioned characteristics. By applying the

nonlinear equations of motion the limit cycles of the system are determined and its loss of stability is investigated.

**1 Introduction and mechanical model
**

Nowadays in automotive turbochargers the application of floating ring bearings is widely-used especially because of their low

costs and reduced power losses. The main problem of rotors supported by floating ring bearings is that they might become

unstable with increasing speed of rotation. Thereby self-excited vibrations are the cause of the loss of stability.

The simplest mechanical model for investigating oscillations due to nonlinear bearing forces is made up of a rigid symmetrical

perfectly balanced rotor of mass 2m1 which is supported by two identical floating ring bearings with a ring mass of m2 . The

floating ring bearing is a kind of journal bearing in which there is a loose ring between the shaft and the bearing housing. In

this way the fluid film is separated into an inner film and an outer film whereas the diameter of the shaft is D1 − 2C1 and the

outer diameter of the floating ring is D2 − 2C2 . The radial clearances of the inner and outer film are denoted by C1 and C2

respectively. While the shaft rotates with constant angular velocity ω1 , the difference in the friction torque due to the inner

film and the outer film forces the ring to rotate with an angular velocity of ω2 . In the following investigation the torque balance

is neglected because the rotational speed of the ring is assumed to be constant. Further assumptions are made by using same

bearing lengths L as well as same lubricant viscosities η for both films. Referring to figure 1 the equations of motion for the

rotor-floating ring bearing model can be written as

**m1 ẍ1 = Fx1 (x1 , ẋ1 , y1 , ẏ1 , x2 , ẋ2 , y2 , ẏ2 )
**

m1 ÿ1 = Fy1 (x1 , ẋ1 , y1 , ẏ1 , x2 , ẋ2 , y2 , ẏ2 ) − W1

(1)

m2 ẍ2 = Fx2 (x2 , ẋ2 , y2 , ẏ2 ) − Fx1 (x1 , ẋ1 , y1 , ẏ1 , x2 , ẋ2 , y2 , ẏ2 )

m2 ÿ2 = Fy2 (x2 , ẋ2 , y2 , ẏ2 ) − Fy1 (x1 , ẋ1 , y1 , ẏ1 , x2 , ẋ2 , y2 , ẏ2 ) − W2 .

The loads in the equations of motion (1) are on the one hand the weight 2W1 of the rotor and on the other hand the weight

W2 of one ring. By applying the π film Ocvirk short bearing approximation to solve the Reynolds equation, an analytical
