Background/Objectives: Gyroscopic couple is a reactive couple which opposes any changes of the spinning motion of the spinning axis. The study aims to perform the experimental analysis of gyroscopic effects on a disc using the experimental setup available in machine dynamics laboratory at Mechanical Engineering Department, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. Method: The mass is kept in the pan at a fixed distance from rotor and the applied couple is calculated. The Gyroscopic couple is also found with the help of mass moment of inertia, rotor speed and precession speed. Findings: The author recorded the observations of various spinning speeds (881,1608,2004 and 2546 RPM) for 45◦, 90◦, 135◦ and 180◦ precession angle with a set of externally applied load of 1kg, 2kg, 3kg and 4 kg. The author verifies the gyroscopic couple, compares it with the applied couple and suggested the precession speeds along with the externally applied load to achieve the minimum error (mention the minimum error value). Novelty: The study will be useful for researchers in avoiding errors in the initial stage of their research work.
Keywords: Gyroscopic couple; applied couple; precession speed; precession angle
