This paper deals with the development of a procedure to model geometric variations of blades. Specifically, vibratory parameters of blades are extracted from coordinate measurement machine (CMM) data on an integrally bladed rotor (IBR). The method is based on a proper orthogonal decomposition of CMM data, solid modeling, and finite element techniques. In addition to obtaining natural frequencies and mode shapes of each blade on an IBR, statistics of these modal parameters are also computed and characterized. Numerical results are validated by comparison with experimental results.
