Abstract: The concept that changes in the dynamic behaviour of a rotor could be used for general fault detection and monitoring is well established. Current methods rely on the response of the machine to unbalance excitation during run-up, run-down or normal operation, and are mainly based on pattern recognition approaches. Of all machine faults, probably cracks in the rotor pose the greatest danger and research in crack detection has been ongoing for the past 30 years. For large unbalance forces the crack will remain p…
