a canonical linear harmonic oscillator with a quadratic dependence of the potential energy on the displacement from an equilibrium condition, 2) a rotor with a fixed axis that produced an energy proportional to the square of a quantum number, 3) a rigid rotor with a free axis that produced a rotational energy based on functional J (J + 1) and 4) a non-rigid rotor as a model of a diatomic molecule that produced again an energy dependent on the same functional.
It consists of a rigid rotor disk with mass [m.sub.r] and 2DOF ([x.sub.r], [y.sub.r]), mounted on a massless elastic shaft, with stiffness [k.sub.r], and subjected to linear viscous damping [c.sub.r]; a viscoelastic suspended stator, with mass ms and stiffness [k.sub.s], and subjected to linear viscous damping cs, with two translational DOF ([x.sub.s], [y.sub.s]), is also considered.

The two-bladed rotor, although in better shape dynamically than a single-bladed rotor, must accept very high cyclic loading if a rigid rotor hub system is employed or provide a so called teeter bearing to allow the rotor blade to rock (as a pair) to alleviate blade, drive train and tower head loading.
