This paper deals with a nonstationary oscillation of a rotor passing through a critical speed. The analysis is based on the method of multiple scales and the method of matched asymptotic expansion. The peak amplitude of the response and the criteria for the onset of the stalling (inability to pass through the critical speed) are derived. These results are compared with those of digital computer simulation.
