Planar dynamics of a rotor supported by long hydrodynamic journal bearing is investigated theoretically. An analytical model of the long journal bearing system is numerically integrated for analysis of fixed point and periodic oscillations. The nonlinearities in the system arise due to a nonlinear fluid film force acting on the journal. The influences of three dimensionless parameters, viz. bearing parameter, unbalance, and rotor speed, on the dynamic behavior of the rotor bearing system is studied and compared with the short journal bearing. For the same bearing parameter, short bearing has large operating speed compared to a long bearing. The results are presented in the form of a bifurcation diagram and Poincaré map of the oscillations based on numerical computation. The considered unbalanced system shows periodic, multiperiodic, and quasi-periodic motion in different speed range. Jumping phenomenon is also observed for a high value of bearing parameter with unbalance.
