This paper develops and improves the concise and general purpose oriented finite element rotating shaft model with an open crack for the quantitative analysis. Particularly, the case with the directional difference of the bearing support stiffness is focused. The theoretical analysis of both the natural frequency and the double-frequency vibration due to crack are performed. Both theoretical results are compared with the experimental results, and their quantitative agreement are confirmed.
