In the component mode synthesis method, the equation of motion in the generalized coordinates is built upon the undamped eigenvalue data of the component structures. Error is inevitable when truncated modes are used. In this paper, two model truncation schemes were evaluated with regard to the critical speed, stability, and unbalance response of a two-spool gas turbine engine. The numbers of modes required to yield acceptable accuracy in these cases were determined. Guidelines for modal truncation were derived from these results.
