This project was initiated to more fully understand the dynamic stability of an automotive turbocharger rotor-bearing system using both linear and nonlinear analyses. The capabilities of a commercial Finite Element Analysis (FEA) code (computer program) were implemented in the investigation process. Several different hydrodynamic journal bearings were employed in the study of the turbocharger linearized dynamic stability. The research demonstrates how the linear analysis of a turbocharger rotordynamics can be very beneficial for the design evaluation and maintenance purposes.
