Technological solution, frequently used to suppress vibrations in rotating machines, consists in adding damping devices between the rotor and its frame. This is enabled by dampers working on the principle of a squeezing thin classical or magnetorheological fluid film. The Navier-Stokes equations, Reynolds equation, and modified Navier-Stokes equations are used to determine the pressure distribution in the thin fluid film. The damping and stiffness coefficients are computed by the developed procedure presented in this paper. The proposed computational approach is based on the perturbation of the synchronous circular whirling motion. The carried-out computational simulations show that the investigated mathematical models of the squeeze film damper and magnetorheological squeeze film damper allowed computation of the damping and stiffness coefficients. It has been found that the stiffness coefficients computed by the proposed mathematical models may be different.
