In this paper, the dynamic characteristics of an oil-lubricated, sealed squeeze film damper (SFD) with a central feeding groove are analytically derived based on an enhanced dynamic pressure field analysis, accounting for the effect of the seal and feeding grooves, and its validity is experimentally verified. A test rig using an active magnetic bearing system as an exciter is introduced to identify the dynamic characteristics of SFDs with high accuracy and efficiency. Experiments are conducted with the seal gap varied, in order to investigate its effect on the dynamic characteristics of the SFD. The estimated and analytical damping and inertia coefficients for the sealed SFD with a groove are compared and it is found that the pressure field analysis, when neglecting the effect of the seal groove, tends to far underestimate the SFD dynamic coefficients.
