Chaotic vibration of a journal-bearing system

Włodzimierz Kurnik, Zbigniew Starczewski
The possibility of occurrence of chaotic phenomena in a symmetric journal-bearing system has been examined in the paper. The influence of transverse load applied to the system as well as the amplitude of kinematic excitation on the regions of chaos has been determined.
