This paper is the second in a two-part study of identifying mistuning in bladed disks. It presents experimental validation of a new method of mistuning identification based on measurements of the vibratory response of the system as a whole. As a system based method, this approach is particularly suited to integrally bladed rotors, whose blades cannot be removed for individual measurements. The method is based on a recently developed reduced order model of mistuning called the Fundamental Mistuning Model and is applicable to isolated families of modes. Two versions of FMM system identification are applied to the experimental data: a basic version that requires some prior knowledge of the system’s properties, and a somewhat more complex version that determines the mistuning completely from experimental data.
