The mechanical model of looseness of fastening bolt on the bearing pedestal is set up based on the project practice. Using the nonlinear oil-film model put forward by Adiletta, the dynamic characteristics were investigated by numerical Runge-Kutta method. At last, the experiment is performed to investigate the pedestal looseness by a test rig and the fault signals are analyzed by the spectrum cascade and reassigned wavelet scalogram. Numerical simulation and experiment all show that system motion state changes frequently with the increase of the rotating speed. And the experimental results coincide with the simulation results.
