3D whole engine finite element model of a low pressure rotor rig test model is established in this paper. Rotorynamic characteristics are mainly analysed with three models, which include rotor model with static stiffness, rotor model with dynamic stiffness, and whole engine model. The calculation results were compared and discussed deeply. Rotordynamic characteristics of rotor model with static stiffness are similar with the rotor model with dynamic stiffness, but the latter may have additional

Whole engine model, which can capture the modes of casing and coupling vibration between stator and rotor, may have more critical speeds than rotor model only. The unbalance response amplitude and phase angle of the whole engine model are different with the only rotor model, in the values and distributions of the peaks. The result of rotor model with dynamic stiffness is closed to the whole engine model than the rotor model with static stiffness. The peak values of the whole engine model are smaller than the only rotor model. Rotordynamic characteristics with whole engine model are more accurate than rotor model only, so it necessary to analyse rotordynamic characteristics with whole engine model in detail design stage.
