Most aircraft turbojet engines consist of multiple stages coupled by means of bolted flange joints which potentially represent source of nonlinearities due to friction phenomena. Methods aimed at predicting the forced response of multistage bladed disks have to take into account such nonlinear behavior and its effect in damping blades vibration. In this paper, a novel reduced order model (ROM) is proposed for studying nonlinear vibration due to contacts in multistage bladed disks. The methodology exploits the shape of the single-stage normal modes at the interstage boundary being mathematically described by spatial Fourier coefficients. Most of the Fourier coefficients represent the dominant kinematics in terms of the well-known nodal diameters (standard harmonics), while the others, which are detectable at the interstage boundary, correspond to new spatial small wavelength phenomena named as extra harmonics. The number of Fourier coefficients describing the displacement field at the interstage boundary only depends on the specific engine order (EO) excitation acting on the multistage system. This reduced set of coefficients allows the reconstruction of the physical relative displacement field at the interface between stages and, under the hypothesis of the single harmonic balance method (SHBM), the evaluation of the contact forces by employing the classic Jenkins contact element. The methodology is here applied to a simple multistage bladed disk and its performance is tested using as a benchmark the Craig–Bampton ROMs of each single stage.
