The set up is designed to study the
whirling of shafts. The set-up consists of a sturdy M.S. frame, variable
speed motor bearing holders etc. Different bearing can be fitted in bearing
block to have different end conditions i.e. (i) both end fixed, (ii) one end
free and one end fixed etc. A variable speed motor is provided to drive the
shaft along with speed control unit. As the test is destructive, hence the
shaft can not be used again.

Electric supply of 230 V, AC.
Tachometer/Stroboscope to measure the speed.
bearing for fixed or free ends without restraint.
universal, 5000 rpm, fractional horsepower.
