Samoczynne wyważanie wirnika podpartego sprężyście w dwóch kierunkach

Tadeusz Majewski
This work concerns the method of an automatic balancing of rotors by the movable elements such as balls and rollers. The differential equations of motion describing the behaviour of the system during balancing is derived. Numerical and simplified analytical solutions of these equations are presented. It is shown that the adjustable elements move to the positions at which the system would be completely balanced. This position is shown to be stable. The influence of roll resistance on the accuracy of the solution is discussed.
