The dynamic problems in rotating machinery takes one into a complex and fascinating area and I have had the chance to work on a few of them. Listed below are a few of my wanderings. Some of this work has been funded by NASA Lewis Research Center and some by Office of Naval Research.
We have two rotor kits with probes and associated data acquisition hardware to carry out simulations of real-life industrial systems. One of them is supported on magnetic bearings. More details can be found here.
