This paper presents the results of an investigation addressing the effects of mistuning on the lower modes of vibration of a simple bladed-disk model. The phenomena of dual modes, also known as mode splitting, is studied using holographic interferometry and strain gage measurements under nonrotating and rotating conditions. Resonant amplitudes, mode shapes, and natural frequencies of the disk model were determined, without deliberately mistuning the disk. The tests were then repeated with the disk deliberately mistuned to varying degrees, paying particular attention to the second diameter (2N) dual modes. Additionally, tests were conducted on the disk at a rotational speed of 2000 rpm, in an effort to gain insight as to the vibratory characteristics of the disk under rotating conditions.
