In this study, a flexible rotor with variable support stiffness has been analyzed. Simple support models consisting of mass, spring systems are extracted from modal analysis of the isolated support and by applying static loads to the finite element model of the supports. The derived equivalent models of the supports are then implemented in the finite element based structural model which predicts the dynamic behavior of the rotor. Finally experimental modal analysis of the rotor is performed with different support stiffnesses. The experimental and theoretical results have been compared and different support modeling approaches have been examined.
