    Abstract

    This paper discusses the experimental evaluation of performance of squeeze film dampers without centralizing retaining springs. Rotor amplitudes in the damper plane and damping coefficient have been considered to assess the system performance. Tests were conducted on two damper configurations that were to go in the rotor assembly of a certain gas turbine engine. Land width and film thickness were varied, and experiments were conducted for different values of excitation frequency, oil supply pressure, and unbalance. The test program showed that the parameters are to be individually optimized to obtain better overall performance in the damper systems without centralizing springs. The damper configurations subjected to severe dynamic conditions due to unbalance on overhung mass were also experimentally analyzed.
