Hydrodynamic bearings are commonly used to support fast rotating rotors. Due to their nonlinear bearing properties, they strongly influence the rotor response behaviour, which can be observed by the occurrence of sub-harmonic oscillations. The appearance of sub-synchronous vibrations depends on the operating bearing conditions, which are determined by the kinematics of bearing partners, the thermodynamic processes and especially the occurrence of cavitation. In this contribution, the rotor
