In the structural dynamics design process of turbomachines, Coriolis effects are usually neglected. This assumption holds true if no pronounced interaction between the shaft and disk occurs or if the radial blade displacements are negligible. For classical rotordynamic investigations or for machines where the disk is comparatively thin or weak, Coriolis effects as well as centrifugal effects like stress stiffening and spin softening have to be taken into account. For the analysis of complex structures the finite element method is today the most commonly used modeling approach. To handle the numerical effort in such an analysis, the aim of the present work is the further development of an existing reduced order model, which also allows the consideration of Coriolis effects without the loss of accuracy for a wide range of rotational speeds. In addition to the investigation of the tuned design of the bladed disk using cyclic boundary conditions, the described method is also appropriate to investigate mistuning phenomena including Coriolis effects. Due to the fact that the computation time can be reduced by two orders of magnitude, the method also opens up the possibility for performing probabilistic mistuning investigations including Coriolis effects.
