This paper presents, and experimentally verifies, a two-plane balancing technique for rigid rotors and possibly flexible rotors operating at a constant speed. The technique, based upon influence coefficients, extends the single-plane four-run balancing procedure to two planes. Like the four-run method, this technique is most easily performed graphically and does not require response phase measurement. Despite the additional runs required to obtain data, its simplicity and applicability to a wide range of equipment renders it more useful, in some cases, than the standard two-plane influence coefficient method.
