A method is presented for calculating the lateral vibration characteristics of rotating systems and establishes improved criteria for design. The method is also applicable to the vibration analysis of interconnected beam systems which are nonrotating and lying in a single plane. This first part restricts itself to the development of the method of analysis. A companion paper describes the experiences related to the computer program and to some of the applications of the method since 1957.
