A reduced order approach is introduced in this paper that can be used to predict the steady-state response of mistuned bladed disks. This approach takes results directly from a finite element analysis of a tuned system and, based on the assumption of rigid blade base motion, constructs a computationally efficient mistuned model with a reduced number of degrees of freedom. Based on a comparison of results predicted by different approaches, it is concluded that: The reduced order model displays structural fidelity comparable to that of a finite element model of the entire bladed disk system with significantly improved computational efficiency; and under certain circumstances both the finite element model and the reduced order model predict quite different response from simple spring-mass models.
