This paper is a continuation of previous papers by the authors that focuses on predicting the mistuned embedded rotor blade forced response. The compressor under consideration is a part of a 3.5stage rig located at Purdue University. Previously, the current authors have discussed the impact of sideband traveling wave forcing functions on the mistuned response and pinned down the reason for a constant underprediction in the amplification factor. This prompted further research to determine the sensitivity of the response to a known change in the system mode. In the first section of the current paper, the authors perturb the system modes frequencies in a probabilistic manner and compute the influence of the system mode on the mistuning amplification factor. The second part of this study involves determining the impact of a perturbation in the structural damping on the mistuned response. The study is also extended to an aerodynamic dynamic analysis wherein the impact of a perturbation in system mode frequency and structural damping is determined both individually and as a combined influence. Finally, a brief investigation of system eigenvalues and eigenvectors is conducted to understand the impact of mistuning on aerodynamic damping suppression. This analysis is joined with a broad examination of the relationship between damping and the extent of mistuning. The key conclusions from this paper are (1) the mistuned forced response was highly sensitive to the system mode input, i.e., although the input was probabilistic, the output was deterministic, (2) since the aerodynamic damping dominates in the case study, a change in the structural damping parameter has minimal effect on the mistuned response, particularly the mistuning amplification factor, (3) the results of the flutter analysis show that a perturbation in the system mode frequency stabilizes the system much faster than a perturbation in the structural damping, and the latter has minimal influence on the eigenvalues of the solution, (4) under the application of mistuning, compression of the damping components of the complex eigenvalues is dominant over the expansion of the frequency components and is amplified when the structural coupling is not considered, and (5) in cases of both random and near alternate blade mistuning, the relationship between mistuning and damping is positive up to a point, after which further increasing mistuning begins to reduce system damping.
