This paper presents the characteristics of lateral vibrations of rotor system supported by hydrodynamic journal bearings. Finite element model is developed for the dynamic analysis of rotor system. Hydrodynamic bearings are modeled with the distributed springs and dampers in shape of the 2nd order polynomials in the direction of bearing width. Experiments are conducted to measure the natural frequency, and experimental results are compared with the theoretical results that are calculated using the point model and distributed model. Theoretical results using the distributed model agrees better with the measured results as bearing width increases. Also, this method is applied to actual three-stage turbo blower model. Then, critical speed and forced vibration analysis are performed.
