The vibration of cracked rotor is investigated by numerical method. The FEM is used to model the rotor with cracks. Six degrees of freedom are considered in each elemental node. Full 6×6 flexibility matrix is deduced by Papadopoulos and Dimarogonas’ method, and 12×12 stiffness matrix of cracked element is derived. The influence of one or more cracks on the natural frequencies and different modals (including bending modal, torsion modal and longitudinal modal) of cracked rotor is explored. Vibration responses of rotor with open cracks or breathing crack loading by eccentric force and rotor gravity force are obtained and analyzed by numerical integer method and spectral technology. The coupling of lateral, longitudinal and torsion vibrations due to transverse surface crack is studied. It is concluded that the above research is useful in detecting crack in rotor.
