Crack fault diagnostics plays a critical role for rotating machinery in the traditional and Industry 4.0 factory. In this paper, an experiment is set up to study the dynamic response of a rotor with a breathing crack as it passes through its 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 and 1/5 subcritical speeds. A cracked shaft is made by applying fatigue loads through a three-point bending apparatus and then placed in a rotor testbed. The vibration signals of the testbed during the coasting-up process are collected. Whirl orbit evolution at these subcritical speed zones is analyzed. The Fourier spectra obtained by FFT are used to investigate the internal frequencies corresponding to the typical orbit characteristics. The results show that the appearance of the inner loops and orientation change of whirl orbits in the experiment are agreed well with the theoretical results obtained previously. The presence of higher frequencies 2X, 3X, 4X and 5X in Fourier spectra reveals the causes of subharmonic resonances at these subcritical speed zones. The experimental investigation is more systematic and thorough than previously reported in the literature. The unique dynamic behavior of the orbits and frequency spectra are feasible features for practical crack diagnosis. This paper provides a critical technology support for the self-aware health management of rotating machinery in the Industry 4.0 factory.

Rotating machines are extensively used in industry, such as the compressors, rotors in manufacturing machines, steam and gas turbines, generators, and pumps [12,13,14]. Fatigue cracking of rotor shafts is an important phenomenon that can lead to severe damage and great economic loss if not detected in time, especially for the highly connected and automatic production system in the Industry 4.0 factory. The CPS provides great opportunity to perform online crack detection based on the broad implement of sensors, data acquisition systems, computer networks and cloud computing systems together with the rotor dynamic theory so that the sudden breakdown of production lines due to the cracked shafts can be avoided.

It has been shown in the literature that the presence of a crack introduces additional flexibility to the shaft, which reduces its overall stiffness and generates complex orbits and super-harmonic frequency components [15, 16]. The dynamic analysis of cracked rotor systems has been intensively studied by many researchers [17,18,19,20,21,22,23]. Sinou, et al. [17] evaluated the dynamic response of the rotor with a breathing crack by expanding the changing stiffness of the crack in a truncated Fourier series and using the Harmonic Balance Method. The orbits during transient operation at the critical speed and at half of the critical speed were considered to be the unique characteristics of the cracked rotor system. Babu, et al. [18] used the Hilbert-Huang transform to study the transient response of a cracked rotor passing through its critical speed. A frequency fluctuation was observed at the sub-critical speed. Al-Shudeifat [19] and Silani, et al. [20] used finite element models to establish the dynamic equations of the cracked rotor system. The whirl orbit and the shifts in the critical and subcritical speeds were studied. Shravankumar, et al. [21] utilized a full-spectrum method obtained by complex Fast Fourier transform to estimate the force and displacement coefficients for crack identification. The typical orbits and the frequency spectrum at the sub-critical speed were investigated. Lu, et al. [22] studied the nonlinear response characteristics of a breathing transverse crack rotor. The results indicate that the transverse crack causes super-harmonic resonance peaks at the second, third and fourth subcritical speeds. In an earlier paper by a subset of the authors [23], a new breathing function was proposed and the empirical mode decomposition was used to study the high-order frequency variation of a Jeffcott rotor with a transvers breathing crack. The typical whirl orbits during passage through the 1/3 and 1/2 subcritical speeds were observed. Based on aforementioned literature and other references therein, it can be concluded that analyzing unique characteristics of the dynamic response is a feasible and widely used method for crack detection.

However, although many papers have been published in this area, only a few employ actual results from laboratory experiments [24]. Darpe, et al. [25] verified theoretical findings through experiments with a fatigue crack rotor. The orbits and FFT spectra during the rotor passage through the 1/3 and 1/2 critical speeds consistently matched the theoretical findings. Later, Zhou, et al. [26] and Ren, et al. [27] adopted a similar method to further examine fatigue in cracked rotors. Compared with real fatigue cracks, the open crack is easier to implement in the experiment. Dong, et al. [28], Lin, et al. [29], and Mohammed, et al. [30] used a wire cutter machine to generate slits with different depths in the rotor which were generally viewed as open cracks.

In this research, the dynamic response of a breathing cracked rotor was studied experimentally. A real fatigue crack was induced using a three-point bending machine. The unique orbit evolution was compared with the theoretical findings given in Ref. [19], and the frequency spectra obtained by FFT method were analyzed as well. This work presents an effective crack detection method based on the dynamic response for the online diagnosis of rotor systems in the future smart factory.

In Ref. [23], a Jeffcott rotor model was established, and a breathing function was synthesized using Fourier series to approximate the actual breathing process. The breathing of the crack during the shaft rotation can be described as shown Figure 1. When open, the crack causes a reduction in bending stiffness of the shaft, while when fully closed (see Figure 1(f), the bending stiffness is equal to that of the uncracked rotor. Therefore, the breathing phenomenon leads to a time-varying stiffness matrix in the governing equations of the cracked rotor system. The governing equations of the cracked rotor system are given by

A fatigue crack is generated on the shaft transversely by using a three-point-bending machine. Firstly, a slot is made by a wire-electrode cutting machine near the middle of the effective supported span as the initial fault. Then the shaft is placed in the three-point-bending machine and subjected to cyclic loading in a sinusoidal form at the nearby of the precut slot. After about 5000 cycles, the crack propagates to a depth of about 3.2 mm. The displacement of the center of the cracked section is measured by the eddy current sensors implemented in both the horizontal and vertical directions. A speed controller is used to adjust the rotation speed. The vibration signal is collected by a PXI data acquisition box produced by the National Instruments Company.

In order to verify the typical whirl orbits during passage through the subcritical speeds, a coast up and rundown process was performed. The first critical speed of the cracked rotor system was found at about 3300 r/min. The orbits around 1660 r/min, which is the 1/2 sub-critical speed zone, are plotted in Figure 4. It can be seen that the experimental results agree well with the theoretical analysis. The evolution process of the typical loop shown here is clearer and more complete than similar results shown in the prior Refs. [25,26,27]. In Ref. [25], only two whirl orbits were shown which was incomplete to display the evaluation process. In Ref. [27] only the frequency spectra were studied while orbits were not examined. In Ref. [26], the whirl orbits at the subcritical speeds were not quite consistent with the theoretical results. The reason may lie in that in Ref. [26] the oil film force generated by the journal bearings affected the rotor orbits, but in this research the high precision ball bearings are used which can help to reduce the additional force.

Compared with previous experimental results, the investigation of the orbits and frequency spectra herein is more systematic and complete, which provides a crack diagnostics method for the health management in Industry 4.0 factories.

In future work, the experiment can be designed with multiple faults, such as the crack with bearing fatigue, oil-film force, or rub-impact fault to study the influence of other faults on the dynamics of cracked rotor systems and the crack detection method in multi-fault cases.

In his encyclopedic manuscript Geographica, Strabo, who visited Alexandria in the late first century BC, reported that Sostratus of Cnidus had a dedication to the "Saviour Gods" inscribed in metal letters on the lighthouse. Writing in the first century AD, Pliny the Elder stated in his Natural History that Sostratus was the architect, although this conclusion is disputed.[10] In his second century AD educational treatise How to Write History, Lucian claimed that Sostratus hid his name under plaster which bore the name of Ptolemy, so that when the plaster eventually fell off, Sostratus's name would be visible in the stone.[11][12] The blocks of sandstone and limestone used in the construction of the lighthouse have been scientifically analysed in order to discover where they originated, with mineralogical and chemical analysis pointing to the Wadi Hammamat quarries, which are located in the desert to the east of Alexandria.[13] 350c69d7ab
