Vibrations attenuation of a Jeffcott rotor by application of a new mathematical model of a magnetorheological squeeze film damper based on a bilinear oil representation

A frequently used technological solution for reducing oscillations of rotors excited by imbalance, time-varying forces or ground vibrations consists in inserting damping devices in the rotor supports. To achieve their optimum performance in a wide range of operating speeds their damping effect must be controllable to be possible to adapt it to the current working conditions. This is enabled by application of magnetorheological squeeze film dampers. In mathematical models the magnetorheological oils are represented mostly by Bingham or Herschel–Bulkley theoretical materials. Recent experimental measurements carried out at several working places show that with respect to the shape of the flow curves obtained for different magnitudes of magnetic induction the real magnetorheological fluids behave like a bilinear material. This enables a more accurate implementation of magnetorheological fluids in mathematical models of squeeze film dampers. In addition, unlike the Bingham fluid the flow curve of a bilinear material is continuous which reduces the nonlinear character of the procedures for calculation of the hydraulic forces by which the oil film acts on the shaft journal and the rotor casing. A new developed mathematical model of a short magnetorheological squeeze film damper based on representing the lubricating oil by bilinear material was implemented in the computational procedures for analysis of the steady state response of a Jeffcott rotor loaded by a stationary force and by the weight and imbalance of the disc. The performed computational simulations proved that these procedures were numerically stable and arrived at the solution also in cases when the methods based on representing the magnetorheological oil by Bingham material failed.
