This rotordynamics and magnetic bearings short course will include presentations by UVA faculty and graduate students. Case histories and examples from industry professionals will also be presented.

ROMAC supports cooperative research efforts conducted by faculty, and students in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Virginia. The ROMAC Industrial Consortium emphasizes theoretical and experimental research in the general areas of rotordynamics, turbomachinery, structural dynamics, fluid film bearings, seals, internal incompressible flows, the coupling of internal flows to the dynamics of rotating machinery, magnetic bearings, and the application of automatic controls to the dynamics of rotating machinery.

The interaction between industry and university professionals through the medium of ROMAC provides the university researchers with an understanding of practical industrial problems with rotating machinery while the industrial participants obtain very timely research results.
