ROTORDYNAMIC SIMULATIONS (i.e. analysis of flexural and lateral vibrations including bearing influence) are another subject area as part of the engineering service. These CAE studies include the calculation of critical speeds and acceptable operating conditions while considering the shaft design and above all the characteristics of the ball, roller bearings, or the fluid-film bearings, respectively. The analysis also includes the study of torsional vibrations as an option.
Starting with smaller studies, which can be realized in a short time, you can „upgrade“ the engineering service step by step even up to a complete study, design and configuration of complex fluid-film bearings (journal, conical, thrust, tilting-pad bearings).
Laschet Consulting is official cooperation partner of RBTS, Inc. (U.S.A.) (www.rbts.com). We provide software and engineering support in close cooperation with RBTS – usually realized in efficient WebEx meetings.

The simulation software “ARMD” designed by RBTS is a very powerful CAE tool which is distributed and supported in Germany and Europe by Laschet Consulting. Presentations and training sessions can be arranged individually – usually supported by an online meeting (WebEx).

The next “International Seminar on ROTORDYNAMICS and FLUID-FILM BEARINGS in Rotating Machinery” is now scheduled for 12-15 October 2020 in the Leonardo Hotel Cologne. In short, we will update our web site accordingly to provide further information, the seminar program, and the online registration. You may contact us to keep you updated by our newsletter.
The current version V6.0 of the complete ARMD package is described in the following document (PDF): ARMD-V6.0
