The influence of turbulence and inertia of oil film on the dynamic characteristics and stability of rotor-bearings systems is theoretically analyzed for various Reynolds number values. The rotor is assumed to be rigid, symmetrical, balanced, and supported in two identical aligned journal bearings. The fluid film forces are evaluated under the short bearing assumption. Stiffness, damping, and acceleration coefficients, and the stability limit curves are reported versus modified Sommerfeld number for various Reynolds numbers and for radius-clearance ratio R/C = 500.
