Rotating Systems

  • T. Z. Blazynski


Rotation of a machine element induces inertia forces and associated stresses that can easily reach critical levels of intensity at high speeds. The problem can be further aggravated by the effects of temperature which are of particular importance in a number of commonly used systems such as turbines, rotary compressors and superchargers. Purely inertial effects, however, play a considerable role in all systems in which rotating discs, cylinders and rod components are employed.
