Previous investigations have shown that the uncentralized type of squeeze-film damper is an effective means of reducing the transmission of unbalance forces into the supporting structure. In this theoretical study a more complex model, which includes an overhung “fan” disk and and a noncentral “turbine” disk has been employed. This model represents the conventional gas turbine somewhat closer than does the previously studied single disk system. This investigation has shown that it is possible to minimize the force transmitted into the surrounding structure by a careful selection of squeeze-film damper characteristics, although it may be found that some larger amplitudes of motion accompany the minimized transmissibility.
