This paper demonstrates experimentally the capability of an AMB actuator to detect shaft cracks during operation of a rotor that would otherwise go undetected by conventional health monitoring methods. The AMB actuator is used in a mid-span location on a rotor supported in conventional rolling element bearings, although the technique is expected to be applicable to AMB-supported rotors.
