Experimental study of transient dynamics of a flexible rotorThe results of an experimental program to investigate the transient response of a flexible rotor are presented. The program consisted of a series of tests conducted on a rig with a rotor designed to operate above its first bending critical speed. The purpose of the tests was to obtain experimental data on the transient behavior of a flexible rotor under conditions simulating those which might occur in a jet aircraft engine. The scope of the program included tests to measure the response of both balanced and unbalanced rotors during steady-state operation, acceleration, deceleration, and simulated blade loss.
