An experiment rig was set up to simulate coupling faults with oil-film instability and local rub-impact. The collected vibration signals were roughly analyzed by 3-D waterfall spectra. In complicated frequency components domain, the vibration signals were analyzed with wavelet scalogram and reassigned wavelet scalogram. Results show that reassigned wavelet scalogram has higher time-frequency resolution than wavelet scalogram and can well identify such close low-frequency components. The analysis results also indicated rub-impact faults induced by oil-film instability can produce some low-frequency components with small amplitude and oil whip can produce half frequency component; rub-impact with a common extent exerts a light influence on rotor systems and nonlinear oil-film force plays a decisive role in rotor systems.
