This paper presents an integrated study of a rotor/bearing structure, with specific interests toward high-speed spindle systems under rotating end loads. Considering the coupling between the rotating shaft and the nonlinear bearings, an iterative method is developed to derive the system equilibrium configuration for given operating conditions. With moving end loads, structural instability caused by high rotational speed is analyzed. The critical speeds and unstable speed regions are discussed. Machining chatter instability lobes are also derived using the spindle model. It is shown that significant errors will occur in predicting spindle characteristics and stability if the speed and load effects on the shaft/bearing dynamics are neglected.
