A dual rotor rig is developed and is briefly discussed. The rig is capable of simulating dynamically the two spool aeroengine, though it does not physically resemble the actual aeroengine configuration. Critical speeds, mode shape, and unbalance response are determined experimentally. An extended transfer matrix procedure in complex variables is developed for obtaining unbalance response of dual rotor system. Experimental results obtained are compared with theoretical results and are found to be in reasonable agreement.
