THE MECHANICS OF SHAFT ALIGNMENT

The static load/deflection behaviour of a flexible shaft resting on elastically-supported journal bearings is examined. Each journal is in contact with its bearing but may move in a circular orbit around the bearing centre. Also examined is the change in configuration when shaft rotation causes contact-support at the bearings to be replaced by fluid-film support. A procedure is devised whereby the static alignment required to achieve a desired operating alignment can be determined. Numerical examples are presented.
