Integrally bladed rotors dynamic properties are known to be particularly sensitive to small geometric discrepancies due to the machining process or in-service wear. In this context, it is straightforward that setting up accurate numerical models which take into account real mistuning patterns is a key issue in the prediction of forced response amplitudes under operating conditions. The present study focuses on an experimental bladed disk. Due to strong inter-blade coupling, the geometric mistuning is supposed to result in severe mode localization for the studied bladed disk, thus emphasizing the need of a realistic, predictive finite-element model. This paper describes the procedure which leads to the development and validation of a high-fidelity FE model for a realistic bladed disk, based on coordinate measurements by means of fringe projection. After giving an overview of the coordinate measurement and model building for the studied bladed disk, the comparison of cantilevered-blade and full disk calculated eigenfrequencies to individual blade and full disk in quasi-vacuum measurements are presented.
