This paper presents an analytical method for the evaluation of the synchronous response of a general asymmetric rotor-bearing system. In the analysis, slightly asymmetric shaft stiffness in bending and shearing, which distribute along the rotor, and asymmetric transverse mass moment of inertia are considered. The dynamic properties of bearings and pedestals are assumed to be anisotropic and coupled in each direction. The equations of motion with periodic time dependent coefficients are solved by the Harmonic Balance Method and formulated to the transfer matrix. These solutions include the “Modified Holzer-Myklestad-Prohl Method by Lund & Orcutt” as a special case. The results of the analysis are confirmed by a simple model test and field measurements of large turbosets.
