This paper proposes an effective method for sensitivity analysis of forced response of bladed discs to blade mistuning. The numerical studies of forced response of a turbine bladed disc vibrating in the frequency ranges corresponding to resonances with higher modes are also presented. The blade mistuning is modelled by specially defined mistuning matrices used for simulating experimentally measured scatter of blade natural frequencies. Based on this method, the sensitivity of forced response amplitude levels are studied for displacements and stress levels for a realistic model of a bladed disc. The effective response surface techniques are developed for explicit representation of the mistuned forced response as a function of blade mistuning elements.
