Drilling induced vibrations

This video shows a nice lab-experiment with drilling induced vibrations in the riser. It looks fairly convincing though it only explores the effect of the rotating fluid between the drillstring and the riser, not transverse vibration set up in the drillstring itself. Unless the springs in the setup are meant to simulate that?

I’d suppose they’ve published a paper on this too, but no luck tracking it down.
