Cracked rotor demonstrationThe purpose of this demonstration is to observe the behavior of a rotor with a single crack. This will be presented in oscilloscope orbits, 2X POLAR PLOTS, and spectrum cascade diagrams. Crack detection must be observed in all three formats and monitored over a period of time or start-ups. The change in the 2X behavior pattern provides an early warning that a crack potentially exists and that it is likely propagating toward total rotor fracture.
