Numerical analysis of vertical rotor dynamics of ACWW 1000 centrifuge

Janusz Zachwieja, Krzysztof Ligier
In this work, a numerical approach to analysis of dynamics of a hung rotor has been presented. A vertical rotor of the ACWW 1000 centrifuge has been used as a real object for verification of the discussed model. This rotor, due to its constructional features, should show the gyroscopic effect in the range of achievable rotational speed.
Keywords: gyroscopic effect; natural frequency; Campbell diagram
