FSI-RRSAcad. year: 2019/2020
The students are acquainted with the basic dynamic behaviour of rotor systems and construction of parts, shaft parts, non-linear coupling forces between rotating and non-rotating parts, turbine and compressor blades and disks. The subject focuses on theoretical, computational and experimental modelling. The natural frequencies and natural shapes of vibration, steady state and transient responses are analysed and discussed.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The students obtain the basics of theoretical knowledge, computational modelling. The practical part of this subject will focus on experimental analysis of dynamic behaviour of experimental kit. The results obtained during the computational and experimental analysis will be compared and analyzed
To solve the eigen value problems
To solve steady state and transient responses for dynamic system with n degree of fredom
The knovledge of base of dynamic behaviour of nonlinear dynamic systems
The knovledge of base of experimental modal analysis

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The students will solve the semester tasks, which are necessary e for awarding the course-unit credit. In the last week of the semester students will write the exam tests. This test consists of 10 questions, where 2 points are the maximum for each question. It is necessary to obtain minimum 10 points.
19-20 - excelent
16-18 – very good
14-15 - good
12-13 - satisfactory
10-11 - sufficent
0-9 – failed
In case of unsatisfactory evaluation, the second part of the exam is oral. The results of semester assignments will be taken into account for final evaluation.
Language of instruction
The students obtain the overview of the rotor dynamic systems.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
Attendance at practical training is obligatory. Longer absence is compensated for by special tasks according to instructions of the tutor. Seminar credits are awarded on the condition of: active presence in the seminars, good results of seminar tests on basic knowledge, solution of additional tasks in case of longer excusable absence. Seminar tutor will specify the concrete form of these conditions in the first week of semester.
