A method is proposed for the determination of the aeroelastic behavior of a system responding to mode-shapes which are different from the tuned in vacuo ones, due to mistuning, mode family interaction, or any other source of mode-shape perturbation. The method is based on the generation of a data base of unsteady aerodynamic forces arising from the motion of arbitrary modes and uses least square approximations for the prediction of any responding mode. The use of a reduced order technique allows for mistuning analyses and is also applied for the selection of a limited number of arbitrary modes. The application of this method on a transonic compressor blade shows that the method captures the aeroelastic properties well in a wide frequency range. A discussion of the influence of the mode-shapes and frequency on the final stability response is also provided.
