The results of an analytical and experimental investigation showing the existence of an intershaft viscous damper instability were presented in reference [1]. In the present investigation, a more comprehensive stability analysis is used to study the stability of the test rig which incorporates a modified intershaft bearing support. The analysis is applicable to large multi-mass, rotor-bearing systems and includes the effects of gyroscopic moments, shear deformation, bearing support flexibility, and damping. The results of the stability analysis are presented in the form of system stability maps which clearly indicate the effectiveness of the modification in improving the instability onset speed of the system. Also presented are the results of an experimental investigation which substantiate the analytical predictions.
