Based on the analysis of structural and dynamic characteristics, a dynamic model of flexible rotor system under misalignment and unbalance excitation in aero-engine was developed through Lagrange equations. The model describes the mechanism and influencing factors of nonlinear properties of misaligned rotors. Then some numerical simulations were performed in order to get the vibration response in time and frequency domain. The results suggest that the rotor system and its coupling may behave in a complex and nonlinear way with the excitation of misalignment and unbalance. The response of the system contains 1× and 2× harmonics, and the spectrum signature closely relate to the misalignment magnitude and the distribution of unbalance mass. A series of experiments were also designed to verify the dynamic model. Their characteristics of response are in good agreement.
