In this paper, the contact behavior of a shrink-fitted joint in a
rotor assembly at different spin speeds using the three-dimensional
solid finite element approach with inclusion of thermal expansion effect
is studied. A custom contact model is utilized for shrink-fitted joint
analysis under centrifugal and thermal loads. Theory for applying the
nodal temperature to the thermal expansion force vector for
three-dimensional finite elements is presented and implemented.
Shrink-fitted conical impeller rotor assembly is studied, and the
results are presented in Campbell diagram form. The reduction of the
interference of the shrink-fitted joint due to centrifugal and thermal
forces at high-speed operation as well as the contact status are updated
at each rotational speed step. Based on the results presented in this
paper, the thermal expansion force will have an effect on the natural
frequencies of the rotor system.
