The geometric mistuning problem is investigated for dual flow-path integrally bladed rotors (DFIBRs) by outlining two methods that explicitly account for blade geometry surface deviations. The methods result in reduced-order models (ROMs) that are a reduced form of a parent Craig–Bampton component mode synthesis (CB-CMS) model. This is accomplished by performing a secondary modal analysis on different degrees of freedom (DOF) of the parent model. The DFIBR is formulated in cyclic symmetry coordinates with a tuned disk and ring and blades with small geometric deviations. The first method performs an eigen-analysis on the constraint DOF that provides a truncated set of interface modes, while the second method includes the disk and ring fixed interface normal mode in the eigen-analysis to yield a truncated set of ancillary modes. Utilization of tuned modes have the benefit of being solved in cyclic symmetry coordinates and only need to be calculated once, which offers significant computational savings for subsequent mistuning studies. Each geometric mistuning method relies upon the use of geometrically mistuned blade modes in the component mode framework to provide an accurate ROM. Forced response results are compared to both the full finite element model (FEM) solutions and a traditional frequency-based approach outlined in a previous effort. It is shown that the models provide highly accurate results with a significant reduction in solution time compared to the full FEM and parent ROM.
