In this paper, a new rotor-ball bearings-support-stator coupling system dynamic model with rubbing coupling faults is established for practical aeroengine. In the model, the rubbing fault is modeled, the stator motion is considered, the flexible support and squeeze film damper are established, and the nonlinear factors of ball bearing, such as the clearance of the bearing, the nonlinear Hertzian contact force between balls and races, and the varying compliance vibration because of the periodical variety of the contact position between balls and races, are modeled. The numerical integral method is used to obtain the system responses, the effect of support stiffness on rotor responses is studied using a vibration amplitude-rotating speed plot, and the characteristics of the rubbing fault is analyzed using a 3D cascade plot. An aeroengine tester with a stator is established to carry out the rubbing fault experiments, the simulation results from the rotor-ball bearings-support-stator coupling model are compared with the experimental results, and the consistency of the results show fully the effectiveness of the new rotor-ball bearings-support-stator coupling model with rubbing fault.
