Abstract

Although bladed disks of turbomachinery are nominally designed to be cyclically symmetric (tuned system), the vibration characteristics of individual blades on a disk differ slightly owing to manufacturing tolerance, deviation of material properties, wear during operation, etc. These small variations break cyclic symmetry and split eigenvalue pairs. Actual bladed disks with small variations are called mistuned systems. Many researchers have studied mistuning and the main conclusion is that while mistuning has an undesirable effect on forced response, it has a beneficial effect on blade flutter. Although mistuning phenomena have been studied since the 1980s, studies on forced response are mostly related to increase in the resonant amplitude due to harmonic excitation force. In addition, because few papers have treated the amplification factor expressed in terms of vibratory stress, the mistuning phenomena of bladed disks expressed in terms of vibratory stress are not fully understood. In this study, the mistuning effect expressed in terms of vibratory stress is examined using the reduced-order model SNM (Subset of Nominal Modes) without any assumptions. By comparing the amplification factor expressed in terms of displacement response with that expressed in terms of vibratory stress response, including synthesized stress (von Mises stress and principal stress), the mistuning phenomena expressed in terms of vibratory stress are clarified. The effect of bladed disk structure on amplification factor is examined in detail as well.
