The approaches to reducing the alternating stresses in the compressor blades, arising at a resonance, are discussed in paper. Maximum alternating stresses in blades of the fifth stage of intermediate pressure compressor (IPC, that operating under the gas flow circumferential variation conditions, are defined on the basis of the forced blade oscillations calculation method. Parametric CFD-model which allows to introduce different stagger angles and circumferentially alternating blade pitch at the guide vanes of IPC fifth stage was created to reduce the stresses. The flow circumferential variation was reduced by changing these parameters and as a consequence the resonant stresses were decreased by more than 2.5 times.
