What is the theory of vibrations due to unbalance?

Rotating Unbalance is the uneven distribution of mass around an axis of rotation. A rotating mass or rotor is said to be out of balance when its center of mass is out of alignment with the center of rotation (geometric axis).In this article, I am going to explain What is the theory of vibrations due to unbalance in a detailed manner.

What is the theory of vibrations due to unbalance

Explanation for the theory of vibrations due to unbalance:

Unbalance causes a moment which gives the rotor a wobbling movement characteristic of  vibration of rotating structures.
This article mainly focus on
    • Inherent unbalance in the systems
    • Vibrations due to Reciprocating mass of engines
    • Critical or whirling speeds of a eccentric rotor mounted on shaft.

The formulas related to above contents are described briefly in the PPT shown below.

Effects of unbalance:

    • Vibations
    • Unsafe work conditions
    • Decreased life of bearings
    • Increased maintenance
    • Reduced machine life
    • Noise
