Mistuning, which refers to inevitable variations in blades properties, will change the vibration of bladed disks dramatically. Bladed disks are exposed to effects of forces caused by bladed disk rotation, such as centrifugal and Coriolis forces. However, there is little research on the vibration behavior of a realistic bladed disk with Coriolis force. An investigation of the speed effect, i.e., the effects of centrifugal and Coriolis forces, on the vibration characteristics of a realistic mistuned bladed disk model is presented in this paper. Finite element method (FEM) is used to obtain the system mass, stiffness and damping matrix. The effects of Coriolis force and centrifugal force on the modal frequency and harmonic response characteristics of tuned bladed disk are investigated first, then the modal localization and response characteristics of mistuned bladed disk are researched. This investigation indicates that: Coriolis force has efficient influences on the modal and response characteristics of a realistic mistuned bladed disk: it can both increase and decrease the localization of the mistuned bladed disk for different situations.
