Abstract: The effect of the presence of the single transverse crack on the response of the rotor has been a focus of attention for many researchers. In the present work a simple Jeffcott rotor with two transverse surface cracks has been studied. The stiffness of such a rotor is derived based on the concepts of fracture mechanics. Subsequently, the effect of the interaction of the two cracks on the breathing behavior and on the unbalance response of the rotor is studied. When the angular orientation of one crack relative to the other is varied, significant changes in the dynamic response of the rotor are noticed. A special case of practical importance of a two-crack rotor is one when one of the cracks is assumed to remain open always whereas the other can breathe like a fatigue crack. This simulates a transverse crack in an asymmetric rotor. Effect of orientation of the breathing crack with respect to the open crack on the dynamic response is studied in detail. The results of the present study will be useful in diagnosing fatigue cracks in real rotors, which invariably have some asymmetry.
