Reduced-order models have been reported in the literature that can be used to predict the harmonic response of mistuned bladed disks. It has been shown that in many cases they exhibit structural fidelity comparable to a finite element analysis of the full bladed disk system while offering a significant improvement in computational efficiency. In these models the blades and disk are treated as distinct substructures. This paper presents a new, simpler approach for developing reduced-order models in which the modes of the mistuned system are represented in terms of a subset of nominal system modes. It has the following attributes: the input requirements are relatively easy to generate; it accurately predicts mistuning effects in regions where frequency veering occurs; as the number of degrees-of-freedom increases it converges to the exact solution; it accurately predicts stresses as well as displacements; and it accurately models the deformation and stresses at the blades’ bases.
