paper presents a simulation method that is used to study subcritical
vibrations of a tube roll in a paper machine. This study employs
asymmetric 3D beam elements based on the Timoshenko beam theory. An
asymmetric beam model accounts for varying stiffness and mass
distributions. Additionally, a detailed rolling element bearing model
defines the excitations arising from the set of spherical roller
bearings at both ends of the rotor. The results obtained from the
simulation model are compared against the results from the measurements.
The results indicate that the waviness of the bearing rolling surfaces
contributes significantly to the subcritical vibrations while the
asymmetric properties of the tube roll have only a fractional effect on
the studied vibrations.
