  • Learn about interpretation of results.


Anyone involved with rotating systems, Folks who are fascinated by spinning tops, Inquiring minds.

We will conclude with a Q&A to answer your specific questions.


Stability and performance of rotating systems depend strongly on their rotordynamic behavior. Ineffectively designed systems may result in poor vibration performance, high stresses and shorter life, with failures that may lead to catastrophic events.


The high fidelity rotordynamic analysis capabilities of MSC Nastran enable you to simulate rotating systems containing any number of rotors and stators, which include:

  • jet engines
  • steam turbines
  • turbochargers
  • windmills
  • centrifuges
  • turbo-pumps
  • computer hard drives.

Using 1D, 2D axisymmetric, and 3D elements, users can assess the mode shapes, critical frequencies, and stability with its robust real and complex eigenvalue solution sequences. In addition, nonlinear frequency response enables more realistic bearing analysis. With the help of MSC Nastran’s superelement technology, rotor systems can be reduced and compartmentalized. This makes MSC’s Rotordynamics module particularly adept to analyze very large systems.
