The present work deals with the dynamic analysis of exponential law-based functionally graded (FG) rotor-bearing systems. The effect of thermal gradation and porosity on dynamic characteristics of FG rotor shafts has been studied first time, using exponential law with a novel two-nodded FG rotor element based on Timoshenko beam theory (TBT). Porous material properties are assorted using exponential law and thermal gradation across the cross section of the FG shaft using exponential temperature distribution (ETD). The effects of temperature and porosity on natural frequencies and whirl frequencies are studied. It has been observed that there is a significant reduction in natural frequencies and whirl frequencies with an increase in volume fraction of porosity and temperature. Attempts have been made to obtain suitable reasons for the behaviours based on the material properties. Furthermore, the steady-state and transient vibration responses have been simulated using the Houbolt time marching technique for the ceramic-based FG rotor shaft system. The result shows the maximum amplitude of the steady-state and transient vibration responses is increased, and the critical speed of the FG rotor system shifts towards the left with the increase in volume fraction of porosity and temperature.

Abstract

The present work deals with the dynamic analysis of exponential law-based functionally graded (FG) rotor-bearing systems. The effect of thermal gradation and porosity on dynamic characteristics of FG rotor shafts has been studied first time, using exponential law with a novel two-nodded FG rotor element based on Timoshenko beam theory (TBT). Porous material properties are assorted using exponential law and thermal gradation across the cross section of the FG shaft using exponential temperature distribution (ETD). The effects of temperature and porosity on natural frequencies and whirl frequencies are studied. It has been observed that there is a significant reduction in natural frequencies and whirl frequencies with an increase in volume fraction of porosity and temperature. Attempts have been made to obtain suitable reasons for the behaviours based on the material properties. Furthermore, the steady-state and transient vibration responses have been simulated using the Houbolt time marching technique for the ceramic-based FG rotor shaft system. The result shows the maximum amplitude of the steady-state and transient vibration responses is increased, and the critical speed of the FG rotor system shifts towards the left with the increase in volume fraction of porosity and temperature.
