Thermal synchronous instability phenomena in rotor-bearing systems, also known as the Morton effect, can be generated by the temperature difference developing across the fluid film journal as a result of the viscous shearing within the lubricant of the bearing. Based on Morton Effect model, a user-friendly program has been developed for overhung rotors.
