The nonlinear dynamic behavior of a rotor-bearing system is analyzed with its continuum model based on the analysis of the discrete model, with considering some other important influencing factors besides the nonlinear factors of the bearing, such as, the effect of inertia distribution and shear, transverse-torsion, structural geometric parameters of the system, which make the description of the system more embodiment and avoid the casualness of selection of system parameters. The dynamic responses of the continuum system and discrete system in the same unbalance condition are approached by the Runge-Kutta method and Newmark-β method. With the comparison of the results, significant difference about the dynamic characteristics is found with the addition of the considered factors. It is suggested that the substitution of discrete model by the continuum ones can get more accurate and abundant results. Furthermore, these results can provide more accurate verification and reference for the experiment and nonlinear dynamic design of the more complicated rotor system.
