A dynamic analysis technique which can be employed in rotating centrifugal impeller is presented in this paper. It shows that multi–component partition can be made in repetitive sector region of the centrifugal impeller. The basic repectivie sector region of the centrifugal impeller is divided into three substructures: the full blade, the short blade and the sectorial part of the disc. By using Benfield mode substitution combined with group transformation successfully, the Hermite generalized mass and stiffness matrices under the reduced coordinates are derived. From this, the natural frequencies and the corresponding modal shapes of the bladed disc coupled system can be solved.

The comparison of the analytical results obtained by using this method, other methods and the experimental data of models verifies the reliability, practicability and considerable economic benefits of the method presented in this paper.
