The analyzed object is a highpressure Nozzle of an industrial gas turbine. The models are based on a Recurrent Neural Network with an embedded Feedforward Neural Network to estimate the stress intensity factor. The thermal stresses are calculated based on engine operational data, leveraging a Finite Element Analysis. However, the time series are available just for 54% of the startstop cycles, and only 13 crack measures were recorded. Three separate models were trained based on ten, two, and one observation, respectively. The importance of the empirical data was regulated during the training to avoid solutions inconsistent with the underlying physics. The models generalize well and predict accurately also outside the training domain. Additionally, we propose a novel method of scaling models based on PINNs and transferring knowledge between domains. It enables predicting in the target domain, even if damage measures are unavailable. The obtained results confirm the effectiveness of this approach.

Hańczur P., Szolc T.A., Konowrocki R., Suppression of rotating machine shaftline torsional vibrations by a driving asynchronous motor using two advanced control methods, BULLETIN OF THE POLISH ACADEMY OF SCIENCES: TECHNICAL SCIENCES, ISSN: 02397528, DOI: 10.24425/bpasts.2023.147925, Vol.71, No.6 ( e147925 ), pp.113, 2023 Streszczenie: Many industrial rotating machines driven by asynchronous motors are often affected by detrimental torsional vibrations. In this paper a method of attenuation of torsional vibrations in such objects is proposed. Here, an asynchronous motor under a proper control can simultaneously operate as a source of drive and actuator. Namely, by means of the proper control of motor operation it is possible to suppress torsional vibrations in the object under study. Using this approach, transient and steady state torsional vibrations of the rotating machine drive system can be effectively attenuated as well as its precise operational motions can be assured. The theoretical investigations are carried out by means of a structural mechanical model of the drive system and an advanced circuit model of the asynchronous motor controlled using two methods: the direct torque control – space vector modulation (DTCSVM) and the rotational velocity controlled torque (RVCT) based on the momentary rotational velocity of the driven machine working tool. From the obtained results it follows that by means of the RVCT technique steadystate torsional vibrations induced harmonically and transient torsional vibrations excited by switching various types of control on and off can be suppressed as effectively as using the advanced vector method DTCSVM.

Unlike other manufactured products, chemical stability and toxicity are of increased importance due to the need for biocompatibility over an implants life which could span several years. Thus, the combination of mechanical and biological properties determines the clinical usefulness of biomaterials in orthopaedic and musculoskeletal trauma surgery. Materials commonly used for these applications include stainless steel, cobaltchromium and titanium alloys, ceramics, polyethylene, and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) bone cement. This study reviews the properties of commonly used materials and the advantages and disadvantages of each, with special emphasis on the sensitivity, toxicity, irritancy, and possible mutagenic and teratogenic capabilities. In addition, the production and final finishing processes of implants are discussed. Finally, potential directions for future implant development are discussed, with an emphasis on developing advanced personalised implants, according to a patient’s stature and physical requirements.

These new concepts consider the possibility of using electrical machines both as starters and generators, as well as suspension systems for the turbine shafts of aircraft engines. The paper will present mathematical analysis regarding active magnetic bearing (AMB) implementation for rotor–shaft support. This technology allows the elimination of friction forces between cooperating kinematic pairs (stator and rotor), reduces the adverse effects of classic bearings, and increases operating speed range and an operational susceptibility. The mathematical and numerical analysis of active magnetic suspension systems are presented. Next, a comparison of the theoretical studies using Comsol Multiphysics software and its experimental verification are described. A discussion regarding the mathematical analysis and experimental effects is also provided. The conclusion summarizes the theoretical and experimental features of heteropolar radial active magnetic bearings in new electric aircraft engines.

It was reported that 1287 (64%) out of 2007 adults operated on in 2017 had a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 kg/m2, and 26.4% even greater than 30, while the BMI of the most obese patient was as high as 57.6 kg/m2. Such distressing statistics raised an issue related to the inadequate durability of implants used for the fixation of bone fractures. Implants for the lowerextremity fractures may not be durable enough to fit the requirements of overweight and obese patients. This case report presents the history of a 23yearold obese male with a BMI of 38.7, who bent the angularly stabile titanium plate stabilizing his broken lateral ankle and torn distal tibiofibular syndesmosis. Biomechanical analysis showed that the maximal static bending moment registered during oneleg standing was equal to 1.55 Nm. This value was circa onethird of the maximally admissible bending moment for this particular plate (5.34 Nm) that could be transmitted without its plastic deformation. Since dynamic forces exceed static ones several (3–12) times during typical activities, such as walking, climbing the stairs, running, and jumping, unpredictable forces may occur and increase the risk of loosening, bending, and even breaking implants. None of these situations should have occurred for the typical patient’s body mass of 75 kg, or even for the analyzed mass of the young patient (120 kg) who tried to avoid excessive loading during his daily routine. Subsequent implant bending and destabilization of the fracture shows that for the significantly high and still growing number of obese patients, a very strict physical regime should be recommended to prevent overabundant dynamic loads. On the other hand, the geometry of implants dedicated to these patients should be reconsidered.

To achieve this, a mathematical model of the vehicle represented by a multibody simulation MBS system is used. Models of tram with a classic and innovative drive, based on a system of independently rotating wheels on crank axles are analyzed. A new configuration of an innovative drive control of the considered vehicle with the use of braking of independent wheels is proposed. A new geometry of test track is presented. During numerical investigation the values of 'Y' leading forces of tram wheels with the considered innovative drive proved to be lower than in the corresponding vehicle with standard wheelsets. It has been demonstrated that the active control systems are of key importance and should be applied in such innovative tram drives.

The smalldata regime is still a problem for many professionals, especially in the areas where failures occur rarely. The analyzed object is a highpressure Nozzle of a heavyduty gas turbine. Operating parameters of the engines are used for the regression analysis. The following algorithms are used in this work: multiple linear and polynomial regression, random forest, kernelbased methods, AdaBoost and extreme gradient boosting and artificial neural networks. A substantial part of the paper provides advice on the effective selection of features. The paper explains how to process the dataset in order to reduce uncertainty; thus, simplifying the analysis of the results. The proposed loss and cost functions are custom and promote solutions accurately predicting the longest cracks. The obtained results confirm that some of the algorithms can accurately predict maximal lengths of the fatigue cracks, even if the sample is small.

Because this kind of magnetic suspensionin its fundamental versionis dynamically unstable, to avoid the disadvantages contained therein, what is being proposed is the addition of external damping through the employment of the newly designed combined selfstabilizing electrodynamic passive magnetic bearing. The electromagnetic stiffness and damping characteristics of combined electrodynamic passive magnetic bearings have been determined for various shaft rotational speeds by means of the advanced 3D finite element method. In this study, a dynamic interaction between the turbocharger rotor shaft and the passive magnetic suspension is proposed as a support for both the fundamental electrodynamic passive magnetic bearings and the suggested combined selfstabilizing passive magnetic bearings. Here, the main attention is focused on the asymptotic stability of both the rotor shaft suspension variants. The additional damping magnitudes required to stabilize the most sensitive lateral eigenmodes of the object under consideration have been determined by means of the RouthHurwitz stability criterion.

Nevertheless, because of the skewsymmetrical viscoelastic properties of such bearings, they are prone to operational instability. In order to avoid this, the paper proposes the addition of external damping into the newly designed vibrating laboratory rotorshaft system. This may be achieved by means of using simple passive dampers that would be found among the components of the electrodynamic bearing housings along with magnetic dampers, which satisfy the operational principles of active magnetic bearings. Theoretical investigations are going to be conducted by means of a structural computer model of the rotorshaft under construction, which will take into consideration its actual dimensions and material properties. The additional damping magnitudes required to stabilize the most sensitive lateral eigenmodes of the object under consideration have been determined by means of the RouthHurwitz stability criterion.

The considered drivetrain system is powered by an electric, asynchronous motor at the one side and loaded with a harmonically varying torque on the other side. Here, an influence of electromechanical interaction, i.e., an electromechanical coupling, between the electric motor and the mechanical system has been taken into consideration. The harmonic load signal induces torsional vibrations in the system, which in the steadystate phase of motion become periodic. The aim of the work is to determine the optimal control function for a semiactive damping element, leading to vibration reduction and considering only the steadystate phase of system motion. The optimal control is derived by using a semianalytical approach based on the optimal control theory aided with supplementary numerical computations. The proposed methodology is fully general, and it can be directly applied to any type of a periodically oscillating system.

Most frequently it affects machines designed to work in a steadystate conditions like: turbine, pump, rail vehicle, etc. In those kinds of machines it is always possible to decompose the system motion to basic averagespeed constant component and oscillatory component. Usually the second term is treated as undesirable and various techniques are applied in order to minimize it as far as it is possible. These techniques refers to both the hardware selection – meaning the type of damping system (active, semiactive, passive) and the control method selection – meaning the damping system control method. Concerning the control methods, there are many algorithms available in literature devoted to transient systems. One of typical application is to use them in systems experiencing sudden, external force excitation. After destabilization of the system, caused by excitation, the role of the control algorithm is to restore the system stable position and additionally to reach the extreme of some additional criterion. Typical criterions are minimization of the time, of restoring the stable position, minimizing the consumed control energy, etc. On the other hand, considering the steadystate systems, especially based on semiactive damping elements, there are not so many control methods available.This paper focuses on developing the proper methodology for deriving the optimal control strategy of semiactive damping element, to be used in periodically vibrating mechanical system. The control strategy is developed on the basis of the Optimal Control Theory. Numerical computations are involved in order to solve the optimal control problem for the considered test system. Problem solution reveals the periodical nature of optimal control function. Słowa kluczowe: Optimal Control Theory, Periodical Vibrations, Vibration Reduction Afiliacje autorów:

The effective estimation of the probability distribution of structural responses is essential for robust design optimization and reliability analysis of such systems. The analyzed scatter of responses is caused by random residual unbalances as well as random stiffness and damping parameters of the journal bearings. A proper representation of these uncertain parameters leads to multidimensional stochastic models. Three estimation techniques are compared: Monte Carlo sampling, Latin hypercube sampling and the sparse polynomial chaos expansion method. Based on the estimated values of the first four statistical moments the probability density function of the maximal vibration amplitude is evaluated by the maximal entropy principle method. The method is inherently suited for an accurate representation of the probability density functions with an exponential behavior, which appears to be characteristic for the investigated rotorshaft responses. Performing multiple numerical tests for a range of sample sizes it was found that the sparse polynomial chaos method provides the best balance between the accuracy and computational effectiveness in estimating the unknown probability distribution of the maximal vibration amplitude.

The aim of this paper is to present semiactive control of torsional vibrations of the working machine drive systems, which is performed using a rotary damper with the magnetorheological fluid. The main purpose of this research is vibration amplitudes minimization in order to increase fatigue durability of the most responsible machine elements. The special control strategies are proposed for steadystate torsional vibrations suppression. The semiactive control method is based on a principle of determinational optimum current damping coefficient values, which is realized by the magnetorheological fluid application.

Thus, a determination of the optimal balance between reducing the rotorshaft weight and assuring its admissible bending flexibility is a major goal of this study. The random nature of residual unbalances of the rotorshaft as well as randomness of journalbearing stiffness have been taken into account in the framework of robust design optimization. Such a formulation of the optimization problem leads to the optimal design that combines an acceptable structural weight with the robustness with respect to uncertainties of residual unbalances – the main source of bending vibrations causing the rubbing effects. The applied robust optimization technique is based on using Latin hypercubes in scatter analysis of the vibration response. The socalled optimal Latin hypercubes are used as experimental plans for building kriging approximations of the objective and constraint functions. The proposed method has been applied for the optimization of the typical singlespan rotorshaft of the 8stage centrifugal compressor.

The main purpose of these studies is to indicate essential differences between the torsional dynamic responses obtained for the considered object regarded respectively as electromechanically coupled and uncoupled.

The computational effectiveness as well as the accuracy of statistical moment estimation are essential for efficient robust design optimization of the rotorshaft systems. The compared methods include sampling techniques, the perturbation approach, the dimension reduction method and the polynomial chaos expansion method. For comparison, two problems of the rotorshaft vibration analysis are considered: a typical singlespan rotorshaft of the 8stage centrifugal compressor driven by the electric motor and a large multibearing rotorshaft system of the steam turbogenerator. The most important reason for the observed scatter of the rotorshaft vibration responses is the inherently random nature of residual unbalances as well as stiffness and damping properties of the journal bearings. A proper representation of these uncertain parameters leads to multidimensional stochastic models. It was found that methods that provide a satisfactory balance between the estimation accuracy and computational effectiveness are sampling techniques. On the other hand, methods based on Taylor series expansion in most of the analysed cases fail to approximate the rotorshaft response statistics.

Here, control damping torques are generated by means of the magnetorheological fluid of adjustable viscosity. Such actuators can effectively suppress amplitudes of severe transient and steadystate rotational fluctuations of the gear housing position and in this way they are able to minimize dangerous oscillations of dynamic torques transmitted by successive shaft segments in the entire drive system. The general purpose of the considerations is to control torsional vibrations of the real powerstation coalpulverizer geared drive system driven by means of the asynchronous motor. The investigations have been carried out using the experimental test rig based on the real object, where the measurement results were compared with analogous theoretical ones obtained by the use of computer simulations.

This approach is based on the Monte Carlo simulations of rotorshaft lateral–torsional–longitudinal vibrations mutually coupled by transverse cracks of various possible and randomly selected depths and locations on the shaft. For this purpose the structural hybrid model of a real faulty object is applied. This model is characterized by a high practical reliability and great computational efficiency, so important for many hundred thousand single numerical simulations necessary for a creation of the databases applied for inverse problem solution finally leading to crack identification. These databases are created with an arbitrary assumed probability densities of crack parameters which ensures appropriate spread of the dynamic responses of the considered faulty mechanical system. A sufficiently large database determined for the investigated object enable us to estimate almost immediately, i.e. within less than 1 s, the crack depth and axial position with identification errors not exceeding 9% and 5%, respectively. Thus, the proposed method seems to be a very convenient diagnostic tool for engineering applications in the industry.

All these methods are based on the Monte Carlo simulations of the rotorshaft lateraltorsionallongitudinal vibrations mutually coupled by transverse cracks of randomly selected depths and locations on the shaft. For this purpose there is applied a structural hybrid model of a real cracked rotorshaft. This model is characterized by a high practical reliability and great computational efficiency, so important for hundreds of thousands numerical simulations necessary to build databases used in solving the inverse problem, i.e. crack parameter identifications. In order to ensure a good identification accuracy, for creating the Monte Carlo samples of data points there are proposed special probability density functions for locations and depths of the crack. Such an approach helps in enhancing databases corresponding to the most probable faults of the rotorshaft system of the considered rotor machine. In the presentedstudy six different database sizes are considered to compare identification efficiency and accuracy of considered methods. A sufficiently large database enables us to estimate almost immediately (usually in less than one second) the crack parameters with precision that is in most of the cases acceptable in practice. Then, as a next stage, one of the proposed fast improvement algorithms can be applied to refine identification results in a reasonable time. The proposed methods seem to provide very convenient diagnostic tools for industrial applications.

The fmite element modelling and damage parameter calculation are based on the algorithm described originally by Chaboche (1987), Luccioni et al. (1996) and 011er et al. (2005). This algorithm is simplified, i.e. the Goodman relationships between the mean and stress amplitude are included. It is extended and applied for simulation of crack propagation in the rotor shaft. The material constitutive model includes plastic effects and damage. The S—N fatigue functions taken from experiment are modified so as to be dependent on the real ratio between minimum and maximum stress in the critical zones. So the coupling between damage, plasticity and fatigue is taken into account. Słowa kluczowe: metal fatigue, damage mechanics Afiliacje autorów:

This method is based on dynamical models consisting of structural macroelements with continuously distributed inertialviscoelastic properties, represented by individual segments of the investigated objects. The fault detection and identification reduces to simulations of diagnostic wave propagation and wave reflections in these models. These simulations are performed directly in time domain by means of analytical solutions of the partial differential equations of motion. In the computational examples, reflected waves were sought in the cracked cantilever rod and beam. These results have been compared with the analogous findings obtained by other authors, using the spectral finite element method. The natural continuous character of the applied elastic macroelements enables us to apply a straightforward simulation of wave effects, which makes the proposed approach a promising and effective tool for fault identification in various structure and mechanical systems.

37.

The problem of partial hydrodynamic lubrication caused by roughness of sliding surfaces has been investigated for many years by numerous researchers. But majority of theoretical studies in this field were focused on very fundamental aspects taking into consideration general principles of bearing operation from the viewpoint of flow determination between sliding surfaces of various roughness description. The considerations in this paper are devoted to partial hydrodynamic lubrication effects in typical cylindrical transverse journal bearings applied for supporting of heavy rotorshafts of the rotating machines. For this purpose there is used the average flow theory for an oil film interaction with rough journals and bushings. In order to carry out a qualitative analysis of the problem a simple mechanical model of the partially lubricated “superbearing” is assumed. This model consists of the rigid mass rotating with constant speed and performing translational inplane motion within the nonrotating rigid ring which is elastically suspended in this plane. The rigid mass represents the entire inertia of the rotating parts of the rotor machine and the rigid ring corresponds to the housing of such “super bearing”. Translational inplane motion of the rigid mass is coupled with translational motion of the rigid ring by means of massless springs and dampers representing respectively viscoelastic properties of the oil film in the “superbearing” with rough sliding surfaces. These viscoelastic properties of the oil film in such bearing are determined by numerical solving of the average Reynolds equation describing partial oil flow between the rough journal and bushing. Here, according to, the pressure flow factors and the shear flow factors standing in the average Reynolds equations are determined analytically using proper empirical formulae obtained by numerical simulations of the model flows between partially lubricated surfaces for various roughness geometry and average oil film thicknesses. Solving in this way the average Reynolds equation for the entire oil gap by means of the finite difference method enables us to determine resultant viscous friction retarding force as well as transverse hydrodynamic load of the bearing. For various roughness geometry the former enables us to determine the frictional power yielded by the bearing and the latter makes possible calculation of stiffness and damping coefficients of the massless springs representing viscoelastic properties of the oil film in the assumed model of the “superbearing”. In the numerical examples numerous roughness amplitudes of the journal and the bushing surface as well as various directional orientations of roughness asperities, which follow from final machining of the journal and the bushing, are taken into consideration in order to investigate their influence on kinetostatic and dynamic behaviour of the transverse oilfilm bearing. In the next steps of research in this field, beyond the partial lubrication, also the metaltometal friction effects are going to be investigated, i.e. for so high loadings of the journal bearing, when the hydrodynamic lubrication theory for the oil film stops to be in force Słowa kluczowe: partial hydrodynamic lubrication, journal bearings, mixed friction effects Afiliacje autorów:
 
38.  Szolc T., On dynamic interaction between the runway and the aircraft landing gear using the analytical approach, Machine Dynamics Research, ISSN: 20809948, Vol.30, pp.7396, 2006 Streszczenie: High static and dynamic overloads caused by the aircraft landing gears moving on the airport runways are a source of uncontrolled cracking of the runway upper layers. In order to investigate this problem the proper analytical model of the runway under moving load is proposed. The finite distance of the runway upper layer is represented by the rectangular continuous Kirchhoff's plate resting on the viscoelastic foundation playing a role of dynamic interface with the runway supporting layer. The plate heterogeneity caused by the runway transverse notches has been taken into consideration in the form of fictitious external responsedependent elastic bending moments. The initial deflections of the runway upper layer due to thermal forces are induced in the model by the equivalent mechanical loads imposed to the plate. Excitation of the plate due to the aircraft landinggear is represented by the set of moving noninertial forces, mutual spacing and number of which correspond respectively to the structure and the total number of wheels of the real landinggear of the assumed aircraft. Numerical simulation of dynamic interaction between the runway and the aircraft landinggear has been performed by means of the modal approach for various running speeds of the heavy aircraft. The quantities of interests are the dynamic transverse deflections of the plate as well as the normal stress in the notch crosssections.

Its operational conditions are much different. Trams overcome horizontal curves with much smaller radii than railway vehicles. There is a large diversity in wheelrail pairing, i.e. almost every public transport operator uses a different wheel profile. In the running gear design much more rubbermetal elements are used in order to ensure a lowfloor interior and to keep the kinematic envelope. Apart from standard vehicle configuration, i.e., a carbody on two bogies, in modern tram designs numerous arrangements are applied: wagons with one outer bogie, wagons with one centered bogie, wagons without bogies (sedan) etc., where twisting shims cannot be used to achieve the required twist. The described issues imply that the methodology of safety against derailment described in EN 14363 standard cannot be applied without any modifications. This paper presents a new proposal for a simulation safety against derailment for a vehicle with an arbitrary configuration of wagons and running gears.

Since this kind of a magnetic suspension in its fundamental version is dynamically unstable, in order to avoid such an essential disadvantage there is proposed the addition of external damping by the use of the newly designed combined, selfstabilizing electrodynamic passive magnetic bearing. The electromagnetic stiffness and damping characteristics of the combined EDPMB have been determined for various shaft rotational speeds by means of the advanced 3D finite element method. The dynamic investigations are performed for a singlespan, highspeed flexible rotorshaft. In the computational part a dynamic interaction between the rotorshaft and the passive magnetic suspension is carried out for a support in the fundamental EDPMBs and in the proposed combined, selfstabilizing passive magnetic bearings. Here, the main attention is focused on asymptotic stability of the both rotorshaft suspension variants. In addition, for the considered rotorshaftbearing system amplitudefrequency characteristics of forced steadystate bending vibrations have been determined. By means of this investigation there is demonstrated a resonance suppression ability using the external damping generated by the proposed combined EDPMBs.

These are the highspeed beater mills and crushers as well as blowers, pumps and compressors, all driven by the asynchronous motors through elastic couplings with linear and nonlinear characteristics. In particular, there is considered an influence of negative electromagnetic damping generated by the motor on a possibility of excitation of resonant torsional vibrations.

The results of computations obtained for the two mutually compared kinds of suspension are demonstrated in the form of Campbell diagrams and amplitudefrequency characteristics. Here, the main attention is focused on resonantfree operation ability assured by the support on the EDPMBs. Moreover, conditions of stability for the support on the journal bearings and on the EDPMBs have been investigated by means of the eigenvalue analysis. There is studied an influence of skewsymmetrical dynamic properties of the both kinds of rotorshaft suspensions caused by the bearing stiffness negative crosscoupling terms as well as by the gyroscopic effects which are particularly severe at turbocharger high rotational speeds.

Nevertheless, because of skewsymmetrical viscoelastic properties of such bearings, they are sensitive to operational instability. In order to avoid this disadvantage, in the paper there are proposed stabilization concepts reducing to an introduction of a sufficient magnitude of additional external damping into the vibrating rotorshaft system. This purpose is going to be realized by means of simple and effective passive dampers built in the electrodynamic bearing housings as well as using heteropolar magnetic dampers which realize operational principles of the active magnetic bearing. The theoretical investigations are going to be carried out by means of a structural computer model of the rotorshaft system, taking into consideration its full geometry and material properties.

Zastosowanie metod numerycznych w projektowaniu procesów mechanicznego urabiania i przeróbki rud metali jest w dalszym ciągu stosunkowo niewielkie. Procesy odspajania kawałków skały od calizny i ich rozdrobnienia z zastosowaniem różnego rodzaju maszyn, wiążą się silnie nieciągłymi zjawiskami zniszczenia materiału i są bardzo trudne do modelowania za pomocą standardowych metod numerycznych, takich jak metoda elementów skończonych, opartych na ciągłym sformułowaniu zagadnienia mechaniki ciała stałego. Duże możliwości w zastosowaniu do tych procesów ma intensywnie rozwijana w ostatnich latach metoda elementów dyskretnych, w której materiał jest reprezentowany przez liczny zbiór ziaren, oddziałujących między sobą poprzez siły kontaktu. Model ten w sposób naturalny uwzględnia materiał rozdrobniony. Uwzględnienie wiązań kohezyjnych między ziarnami oraz możliwości ich zrywania umożliwia modelowanie inicjacji i propagacji pęknięć w materiale.

The investigations are performed by the use of experimental measurements carried out on the real object as well as by means of a theoretical approach using a circuit model of the electric motor in the form of Park’s equations and the advanced drive system hybrid, i.e. discretecontinuous, mechanical model of an identical structure and parameters as the classical preliminarily applied onedimensional finite element model. The experimental and theoretical considerations are focused on the steadystate operating conditions, where severe torsional vibrations are excited by variable components of the driven machine retarding torque as well as by the electromagnetic torque generated by the induction motor. The qualitative analysis is performed by means of the harmonic balance method applied for Park’s equations and using the modal approach for the experimentally identified mechanical model. In order to minimize torsional vibration amplitudes induced by the electromechanical interaction in the considered system, the semiactive control technique based on actuators with the magnetorheological fluid has been tested.

In this paper there is proposed an active control technique based on the linear actuators with the magnetorheological fluid (MRF) connecting the drive system planetary gear housing with the immovable rigid support. Here, by means of the magnetorheological fluid of adjustable viscosity control damping torques are generated. Such actuators can effectively suppress amplitudes of severe transient and steadystate rotational fluctuations of the gear housing position and in this way they are able to minimize dangerous oscillations of dynamic torques transmitted by successive shaft segments in the entire drive system. The general purpose of the considerations is to control torsional vibrations of the powerstation coalpulverizer drive system driven by means of the asynchronous motor and the single stage planetary gear. In the computational examples drive system transient torsional vibrations induced by the electromagnetic motor torques during startups as well as steadystate vibrations excited by the variable dynamic retarding torques generated by the coal pulverizer during nominal operation have been significantly attenuated.

Thus, a determination of the optimal balance between reducing the rotorshaft weight and assuring its admissible bending flexibility is a major goal of this study. The random nature of residual unbalances of the rotorshaft as well as randomness of journal bearing stiffness have been taken into account in the framework of robust design optimization. Such a formulation of the optimization problem leads to the optimal design that combines an acceptable structural weight with the robustness with respect to uncertainties of residual unbalances, the main source of bending vibrations causing the rubbing effects. The applied robust optimization technique is based on using Latin hypercubes in scatter analysis of the vibration response. The socalled optimal Latin hypercubes are used as experimental plans for building kriging approximations of the objective and constraint functions. The proposed method has been applied for the optimization of the typical singlespan rotorshaft of the 8stage centrifugal compressor.

Such electromechanical systems are often affected by detrimental torsional vibrations, suppression of which is commonly performed by more or less effective passive, semi active and active dampers. In this paper there is proposed an alternative method of attenuation of torsional vibrations in such objects. Here, an asynchronous motor under the proper vector control can simultaneously operate as a source of drive and actuator. Using this approach, transient and steadystate torsional vibrations of the driven mechanical system can be effectively suppressed as well as its precise operational motion can be assured. The theoretical investigations are carried out by means of an advanced structural mechanical model of the drive system and circuit model of the asynchronous motor controlled using two methods: the direct torque control (DTCSVM) and the rotational velocity controlled torque method (RVCT) originally developed in this paper. In the computational examples performed for three representative drive systems torsional vibration control ability is analyzed for various dynamic properties of the mechanical part and several parameters of the asynchronous motor control. From the obtained results it follows that for majority of tested parameters, transient torsional vibrations excited by stepwisely disturbed loadings of the driven object are successfully attenuated using both abovementioned vector control strategies. However, a suppression effectiveness of resonant steadystate torsional vibrations by means of these methods depends on the specific case of an asynchronous motor with a given electromagnetic stiffness in the stable operational range of its static characteristics.

5.  Szolc T., STRUCTURAL HYBRID MODELLING APPLIED TO INVESTIGATE CURRENT PROBLEMS OF ROTOR DYNAMICS, VIBSYS, XXX Conference Vibrations in Physical Systems, 20220926/0928, Poznań (PL), pp.8182, 2022 Streszczenie: The notion of rotor dynamics should be defined as a branch of dynamics of mechanical systems including dynamic investigations of machines and devices, the main working elements of which are under rotational motion. One of the main subjects of the rotor dynamics is a quantitative and qualitative examination of steadystate and transient bending/lateral, torsional and axial vibrations of these elements and the influence of these vibrations on the environment and cooperating objects, e.g. electric motors and generators. Because of design and technological reasons, these fundamental rotating operational elements are usually in the form of stepped rotorshafts with segmentally constant or approximately constant cross sections. Such relatively simple geometric shape and realistic frequency ranges of practically tested vibration processes allow the use of onedimensional structural dynamic models of the beam type ensuring an appropriate efficiency and reliability of results of theoretical analyzes carried out for this type of mechanical systems. According to the above, a onedimensional discretecontinuous structural modeling seems to be a particularly useful modeling method for studying dynamic processes in rotating machinery. It consists in a hybrid combination of flexurally, torsionally and longitudinally deformable continuous beam finite macroelements representing individual cylindrical or quasicylindrical segments of the real rotorshaft with discrete oscillators corresponding to its bearing supports, rotor disks, coupling flanges, flywheels, etc., in accordance with a structure of the real object. Mutual connections of the successive macroelements creating the stepped shaft as well as their interactions with the discrete oscillators and other objects, e.g. electric machines or magnetic supports, are described by equations of boundary conditions. These equations contain geometrical conditions of conformity for translational, rotational and axial displacements of extreme cross sections of the adjacent continuous elastic macroelements. The second group of boundary conditions are dynamic ones, which contain linear, nonlinear and parametric equations of equilibrium for external forces and torques, static and dynamic unbalance forces and moments, inertial, elastic and external damping forces, support reactions and gyroscopic moments. For the local partial differential equations of motion of these macroelements there are applied analytical solutions in the form of series in orthogonal eigenfunctions leading to the description of motion in modal coordinates. Such approach allows, on the one hand, to effectively obtain simulation results in the time domain of linear and nonlinear forced vibrations and quicklyvarying shock processes. On the other hand, they make it possible to conduct qualitative tests of the considered rotorshaft systems in the form of natural vibration analyzes, generation of amplitudefrequency characteristics and determination of dynamic stability limits. Moreover, a relatively clear mathematical description of the adopted discretecontinuous (hybrid) models of the rotorshaft systems enables us a convenient coupling of motion equations of the mechanical objects under study with circuit voltage equations being mathematical models of electric motors and generators cooperating with these objects, or with equations describing an interaction of magnetic supports. Summing up, it should be stated that the degree of complexity of the mathematical description and numerical advancement necessary to obtain reliable solutions using this method of modeling of the abovementioned objects can be classified as a kind of intermediate between the classical finite element modeling and traditional discrete modeling, now called “multibody modeling". Owing to this, an application of the proposed structural discretecontinuous (hybrid) models for dynamic analyzes is associated with much smaller problems of physical parameters identification compared to a usually burdensome determination of such parameters of discrete models of respectively the same objects. As a result, this leads to an achievement of actual accuracy of calculations results comparable or identical to those obtained using analogous FEM models, while additionally there is obtained much greater numerical efficiency justified by the need to solve smaller numbers of mathematical relationships describing motion of discretecontinuous (hybrid) models.

In these trams such solution imposes a different design of motor bogies. In this construction of the bogies, four independent motors mounted on the bogie frame are connected each by a gearstage with a single runningwheel. By means of the appropriate control algorithm guiding driving torques in curved sections of the railway track can be generated. Trams must ensure a high level of safety of passengers, and one of its aspect is safety against derailment. This article presents an original simulation method to investigate a level of safety against derailment for such vehicles. Principles of this method are independent of the tram car configuration. Using this approach, structural analysis of trams was carried out, which tested drive control in the boogie equipped with independently rotating wheels. Here, numerous simulations of motion on curved tracks were performed by means of various wheel drive control algorithms.

For a reliability and security of drive system of railway vehicles driven by electric motors, the electromagnetic output traction force and torques should drive stably. Otherwise, the train driveshaft vibrations caused by motor torque ripple will affect fatigue life of the responsible drive system components and an operation security of the driven railway vehicles. The methods developed by the authors and presented in this paper could be applied for creating some basis of vehicle drive system designs with more efficient movementtraction parameters and for increasing an efficiency of the traction vehicles characterized by high levels of power and travelling speeds.

The existing European standard EN 14363 [1] covers all necessary tests for different railway vehicles, but it is inadequate for tramway vehicles, especially in safety against a derailment examination. Its operational conditions are much different. Tramways overcome horizontal curves with much smaller radii than railway vehicles. There is a large diversity in wheelrail pairing, i.e. almost every public transport operator uses a different wheel profile. Apart from standard vehicle configuration, i.e., a carbody on two bogies, in modern tram designs varoius arrangements are applied. The described problems suggest that the methodology of safety testing before derailment described in the EN 14363 standard cannot be used without any modifications in the case of testing tramway vehicles.

To ensure a reliability and unconditional security of high speed electric multiple unit (HSEMU) drive by AC motors, the electromagnetic output traction force and torques should drive stably. Otherwise, the shaft train vibration caused by motor torque ripple will affect a fatigue life of this device and the operation on the driven object. In the paper, a dynamic interaction between the torsionally vibrating HST drive system and the driving asynchronous motor was investigated. The results of wheelset torsional vibration analysis have shown that the first mode with torsional eigenfrequency of the considered wheelset with electric motor is equal to109 Hz and the second torsional eigenfrequency is equal to 680 Hz. The basic torsional eigenvibration property is that the first wheel vibration direction is opposite to that of second wheel. The second torsional eigenvibration property is that the vibration directions of two wheels are coincident and the direction of electric motor connection elements is opposite to the wheels. In the paper there was shown that static torque characteristics of the AC motor are correlated with its electromagnetic negative damping zones. This negative damping can be responsible for instability of the entire drive train. Concerning the transient and steadystate dynamic responses determined for the considered HST drive system, one can state that the studied phenomenon of electromechanical interactions should become an object of further investigations.

Its operational conditions are much different. Trams overcome horizontal curves with much smaller radii than railway vehicles. There is a large diversity in wheelrail pairing, i.e. almost every public transport operator uses a different wheel profile. In the running gear design much more rubbermetal elements are used in order to ensure a lowfloor interior and to keep the kinematic envelope. Apart from standard vehicle configuration, i.e., a carbody on two bogies, in modern tram designs numerous arrangements are applied: wagons with one outer bogie, wagons with one centered bogie, wagons without bogies (sedan) etc., where twisting shims cannot be used to achieve the required twist. It should be also mentioned that in the lowfloor trams there are frequently applied independently rotating wheels (IRW) which are individually driven. The dynamic behaviour of the trams equipped with the IRW wheelsets is significantly different from that of the vehicles with the classical wheelsets. The described issues imply that the methodology of safety against derailment described in EN 14363 standard cannot be applied without any modifications. This paper presents a new proposal for a simulation safety against derailment for a vehicle with an arbitrary configuration of wagons and running gears. The numerical analyzes have been performed be means of the SIMPACK software.

For this reason an investigation of the dynamic response and stability of a electromechanical drive train system was done. The obtained results have demonstrated that the electromagnetic transient processes generated in the electric motor should be taken into account for the use of the assessing the stability of the system. The knowledge about stability of drive transmission systems of machines and railway vehicles is of a great importance in the field of dynamics and material fatigue of the mechanical systems.

Stocki R., Lasota R., Tauzowski P., Szolc T., Scatter assessment of rotorshaft vibration responses due to uncertain residual unbalances and bearing properties, CMM 2011, 19th International Conference on Computer Methods in Mechanics, 20110509/0512, Warszawa (PL), pp.05612, 2011 Streszczenie: The main objective of the presented study is an evaluation of the effectiveness of various methods for estimating statistics of rotorshaft vibration responses. The computational effectiveness as well as the accuracy of statistical moment estimation are essential for efficient robust design optimization of the rotorshaft systems. The most important sources of the observed response scatter are inherently random rotorshaft residual unbalances as well as stiffness and damping properties of the journal bearings. A relevant representation of these parameters leads to multidimensional stochastic models. The compared stochastic moment estimation methods include sampling techniques, the dimension reduction method and the polynomial chaos expansion method. Two problems of the rotorshaft vibration analysis are considered: a typical singlespan rotorshaft of the 8stage centrifugal compressor driven by the electric motor and a large multibearing rotorshaft system of the steam turbogenerator. It is shown that methods that provide a satisfactory balance between the estimation accuracy and computational effectiveness are sampling techniques. Methods employing polynomial chaos expansion perform well in the case of reduced stochastic models. On the other hand, low accuracy of the methods based on Taylor series expansion very often renders these techniques unsuitable for the robust design optimization of vibrating rotor shafts.

Szolc T., Bednarek T., Marczewska I., Marczewski A., Sosnowski W., Fatigue analysis of the cracked rotorby means of the one and three dimensional dynamical model, IFToMM, 7th International Conference on Rotor Dynamics, 20060925/0928, Wiedeń (AT), pp.3200006897, 2006 Streszczenie: In the paper the structural onedimensional hybrid dynamical model of the entire vibrating rotorshaft system and the threedimensional fmite element model of its cracked shaft zone were applied for a fatigue life prediction of the machine faulty segment under coupled bendingtorsionalaxial vibrations. The steadystate dynamic response amplitudes, obtained by means of the onedimensional model of the system, have been used for the threedimensional model as an input data for determination of maximal stresses and stress intensity factors at the crack tip. These quantities together with the Wohler curves enable us an approximate determination of load limits responsible for a probable further crack propagation. By means of the proposed approach one can predict a damage probability of the faulty rotorshaft system of arbitrary structure operating under various dynamic and quasistatic loads affecting a crack of various sizes and shaft locations. From the investigations performed for various crack axial locations on the shaft with respect to bearing supports of the single and doublespan rotorshaft systems, it follows that a strength of the cracked zone is much more sensitive to normal stresses due to bending and axial oscillations than to tangential stresses caused by torsional vibrations.
