Help with single-plane rotor balancing

  1. Apr 4, 2009 #1
    concerning a rotor with an imbalance, how does the angular velocity of the rotor affect calculations about the size and placement of the correction weight?

    angular velocity doesn't affect it

    the higher the angular velocity - the greater forces on bearings. if you calculate the size and placement of the correction weight mathematically accurate, a rotor will have no imbalance, so force on bearings won't be dependent on angular velocity.
