This paper presents one of bistable jump phenomena observed in rotor system supported on uncentralized squeeze film dampers which occurs in the subcritical speed range of rotor. The jumping tendency of this bistable jump is jumping up in acceleration and jumping down in deceleration and is without the transposition of disk mass centre. The behaviors, especially the latter, are different from the bistable jump behaviors reported to date. The reason for occurrence of the subcritical speed bistable jump is explained by a Duffing equation with the varied stiffness and the exciting force which amplitude is proportional to the square of rotating speed of rotor.
