where [alpha] and [beta] are radial displacement components; [k.sub.s] is the radial displacement stiffness coefficient; [f.sub.s[alpha]] and [f.sub.s[beta]] are the unilateral electromagnetic pull components along the [alpha]-and [beta]-coordinate axes, respectively.
Figure 3 shows the changes in the curves of the radial displacement amplitude and circumference displacement amplitude as a result of the changing frequency of the three models.
The calculated deformations of the PTCL under the CCTC and DWPC are shown in Figures 9 and 10, respectively, which also reveal the PTCL's radial displacement at the crown.
2 shows that the elastic radial displacement [u.sub.r] of the two computational models of I and II all increase during the gas drainage process, while [u.sub.r] of model I is larger than model II, that is to say that if the gas desorption shrinkage and moving adaptability are considered, the gas drainage hole would turn to be valid earlier than the traditional calculation model II.
The rotor motion can be described by its displacements in three directions, namely, x, y, z, where x and y are the radial displacements and z is the axial displacement.
