A novel hydrodynamic system, called torsional fluid film vibrator (TFFV) is proposed. This device is complementary to the Lanchester’s absorber and presents a classical response of a one-degree of freedom linear system with a periodical self-excitation. The fluid film thickness variation produces a variable viscous drag moment, which drives the elastically supported bush in a torsional oscillatory movement. The TFFV concept is connected with current research to improve the drilling technology of deep holes. The Navier-Stokes equations are solved on the particular geometry of this vibrator and the viscous drag moment is explicitly presented. The theoretical part is continued with the TFFV dynamic simulation and the analysis of the influence of the geometrical parameters on the amplitude of the viscous drag moment. Computed structural friction power and the amplitude of vibration agree reasonably well with the experimental measurements conducted on a TFFV test rig.
