A damping strategy for integrally bladed disks (blisks) is discussed in this paper; this involves the use of friction rings located underside the wheel of bladed disks. The forced response of the blisk with friction rings is derived in the frequency domain using a frequency domain approach known as Dynamic Lagrangian Frequency-Time method. The blisk is modeled using a reduced-order model and the rings are modeled using beam elements. The results of some numerical simulations and parametric studies are presented. The range of application of this damping device is discussed. Parametric studies are presented and allow to understand the dissipation phenomena. Finally some design and optimization guidelines are given.
