Despite the small direct effect on the dynamics, the gentle rubbing of a rotor can lead to the instability of the rotor, where the rotor deforms in the direction of the non-symmetrical heat input. In order to better predict this effect, named after Newkirk, a test rig is planned at the academic chair.
