Rotor system of modern aero-engine together with the case mounted on the wing represents a uniform system that is supposed to be considered as a rotor-bearings-foundation structure. Nowadays rotating machinery such as modern aircraft engines usually designed, marketed and sold for the most part based on analytical and numerical predictions. In such a way methods to incorporate the foundation effect in rotordynamic calculations are very important. For investigation purposes a rotor-foundation test rig, which can simulate the aero-engine’s typical operating condition such as wing vibration and hard landing, was built to study the influence of foundation behavior on the dynamic characteristics of rotor system. To predict natural frequencies for the full system simplified models based on FEM approach were created. Moreover, simple numerical model was created to study influence of foundation kinematic excitation on behavior of rotor disk orbit. Furthermore simulation results were compared with experimental to understand influence of main parameters which define foundation vibration on rotor deviation from normal operation condition. Obtained numerical and experimental results can help to understand principles of rotating structure-foundation interaction when the later one subjected to excitation and could be further used for improving of more complicated models for design and enhancement of aircraft engines.
