In this paper, stochastic responses and behaviors of a nonlinear rotor system with the fault of uncertain parallel misalignment and under random fluid-induced forces are investigated. First, the equations of motion of the rotor system are derived by taking into account the nonlinear journal bearings, the unsymmetrical section of the shaft, and the displacement constraint between the two adjacent rotors. Then, the modeling on uncertainties of misalignment and random fluid-induced forces are developed based on the polynomial chaos expansion (PCE) technique, where the misalignment is modeled as a bounded random variable with parameter η distribution and the fluid-induced force as a random variable with standard white noise process. Finally, examples on the stochastic dynamic behaviors of the nonlinear generator-rotor system are studied, and the influences of the uncertainties on the effects of shaft misalignment, the stochastic behaviors near bifurcation point as well as the distribution of the system responses are well demonstrated.
