This paper proposes an original approach to the reduced-order modelling of integrally bladed disks. It is proposed to build a reduction basis which is independent from the rotational speed, from only one modal, cyclic-symmetry calculation performed at rest, and a few static computations. Based on previous works, a polynomial expansion is used which leads to a parametric approximation of the stiffness matrix for the entire operating range. Furthermore, the Kirsch Combined Approximation (KCA) method is used for building the final reduction basis. This method is based on successive approximations of the negative binomial expansion applied to the reanalysis eigenproblem. After giving a general overview of the main theoretical aspects, the paper focuses on the reanalysis problem based on the combined approximations method. Finally, the application of the extended reduction method to the case of a real bladed disk is presented. It is shown that the use of combined approximations provides a very accurate estimation of a Campbell diagram, and allows substantial computational time savings.
