Abstract: A methodology is developed to compute the probability of instability of a rotor system that can be represented by a system of second-order ordindary linear differential equations. The probabilistic method is based on the multiple limit-states concept. An efficient adaptive importance sampling method is proposed to perform probabilistic analysis.
