This paper is concerned the stability and bifurcation of a flexible rod-fastening rotor bearing system (FRRBS). Here the shaft is considered as an integral or continuous structure and be modeled by using Timoshenko beam-shaft element which can take the effects of axial load into consideration. And using Hamilton’s principle, model tie rods distributed along the circumference as a constant stiffness matrix and an add-moment which caused by unbalanced pre-tightening forces. Then the model is reduced by a component mode synthesis method, which can conveniently account for nonlinear oil film forces of the bearing. This study focuses on the influence of nonlinearities on the stability and bifurcation of T periodic motion of the FRRBS subjected to the influence of mass eccentricity. The periodic motions and their stability margin are obtained by shooting method and path-following technique. The local stability and bifurcation behaviors of periodic motions are obtained by Floquet theory. The results indicate that mass eccentricity and unbalanced pre-tightening forces of tie rods have great influence on nonlinear stability and bifurcation of the T periodic motion of system, cause the spillover of system nonlinear dynamics and degradation of stability and bifurcation of T periodic motion.
