The analysis of the influence of cracks on the dynamics of bladed disks is critical for design, failure prognosis, and structural health monitoring. Predicting the dynamics of cracked bladed disks is computationally challenging for two reasons: (1) the model size is quite large and (2) the piecewise-linear nonlinearity caused by contact eliminates the use of linear analysis tools. Recently, a technique referred to as the X-Xr approach was developed to efficiently reduce the model size of the cracked bladed disks. The method employs relative coordinates to describe the motion of crack surfaces such that an effective model reduction can be achieved using single sector calculations. More recently, a method referred to as the generalized bilinear amplitude approximation (BAA) was developed to approximate the amplitude and frequency of piecewise-linear nonlinear systems. This paper modifies the generalized BAA method and combines it with the X-Xr approach to efficiently predict the dynamics of the cracked bladed disks. The combined method is able to construct the reduced-order model (ROM) of full disks using single-sector models only and estimate the amplitude and frequency with a significantly reduced computational effort. The proposed approach is demonstrated on a three degrees-of-freedom (DOF) spring–mass system and a cracked bladed disk.
