Squeeze film dampers (SFD) are devices utilized to control vibrations of the shafts of high-speed rotating machinery. A dual squeeze film damper (DSFD) consists of two squeeze film bearings that are separated by a sleeve, which is released when the rotor experiences abnormal operating conditions. In this part of our study of DSFD we analyze the case when both the inner and the outer oil films are active. Previous studies utilized closed form analytical expressions to describe the forces within the lubricant. In this paper the oil forces are modeled using pressure distributions obtained from numerical solutions of the Reynolds equation. Numerical results are compared with the experimental data.
