Dynamics of Rotating Structures Relealed


Published on

Learn how dynamic torsional motion found in rotating bodies can be measured using non-contact angular velocity and displacement sensors. Controlling torsional vibrations is critical to designing reliable vehicles, electric power generators and aircraft propulsion systems.
Rotational vibration data, used in the early stages of product development, has enabled design and test engineers to reduce noise, vibration felt by the passenger/operator, and to substantially increase durability. Classic examples of products with dynamic torsional motion are: drive shafts, universal joints, CV joints, electric motors, combustion engines, turbines, pumps, gearboxes / transfer cases.
Discover how vibrometers can be used to measure the vibration at fixed points and scanned to characterize the entire surface even when the structure is rotating.
Our experts in the field of vibrometry will be on hand to answer any questions you have about your current and future measurement needs and requirements.

  5. 5. Goal – Find critical resonances – Map operational deflection shapes – Verify finite element simulationsUnder real operational conditionsWithout altering the data! 8/24/2012
  6. 6. The Contact Approach: EncodersDisadvantage : – requires mounting on shaft end – instrumentation time – Location is fixed – Changes moment of inertia pulley adaptor encoder 8/24/2012
  7. 7. Vibration in Rotating ObjectsRotational pulses are due to changes in angularvelocity, and must be measured with a rotationalvibrometer. 8/24/2012

  11. 11. Rotational VibrometerThe shape of the object is irrelevant,and the measurement is insensitive to any lateral vibrations. 8/24/2012
  12. 12. Rotational Vibrometerf DA = 2V A λ Doppler Frequency Beam A V A = ω R A cos αf DB = 2VB λ Doppler Frequency Beam B V B = ω R B cos β d = RA cos(α) + RB cos(β) f D = 2d ω fDλ f D = f DA + f DB => ω = λ 2d 8/24/2012
  13. 13. Rotational Vibrometer fDλ ω = 2d From the equation you can see that the rotational velocity ω is only dependant on: - λ (laser wavelength) - f D (measured) - d (beam separation) The radius, lateral position, out-of-plane and in-plane shaft vibrations are automatically cancelled out of the equation therefore:  The measurement is insensitive to any lateral vibrations in x, y or z  The measurement is insensitive to shape of object 8/24/2012
  14. 14. Signal Processing Angular Velocity Angular Displacement RPMDC and AC components are separated from one anotherComplete separate decoding for RPM and dynamic componentVery small angular vibrations can be detected even at high RPMDisplacement is integrated velocity signal 8/24/2012
