Summary "Dynamics of Rotating Systems goes beyond what is usually referred to as rotordynamics. The aim is to deal with the dynamic behavior of systems having in common the feature of rotating. This definition includes systems like transmission shafts, turbine rotors and gyroscopes, which are studied by rotordynamics, but also systems such as rotating blades (i.e. helicopter rotors) or flexible spinning spacecraft. While rotordynamics deals usually only with the lateral behavior of rotors, here some mention is made also to torsional and axial vibration or to cases in which it is impossible to distinguish between them."--Jacket
