A technique for generating reduced-order models (ROMs) of bladed disks with small geometric mistuning is proposed. Discrepancies in structural properties (mistuning) from blade to blade can cause a significant increase in the maximum vibratory stress. The effects of mistuning have been studied over the past few decades. Many researchers have studied the dynamic behavior of mistuned bladed disks by using ROMs. Many of these techniques rely on the fact that the modes of a mistuned system can be approximated by a linear combination of modes of the corresponding tuned system. In addition, the tuned system modes have been modeled in component mode mistuning by using modal participation factors of cantilevered blade modes. Such techniques assume that mistuning can be well modeled as variations in blade-alone frequencies. However, since geometric deformations contain stiffness and mass variations, mistuning can no longer be captured by cantilevered blade modes alone. To address this, several studies have focused on large and small geometric mistuning. These studies exploited the difference between tuned (with perturbed geometry) and nominal tuned mode shapes. In this work, we extend on that approach and devote particular attention to the development of ROMs of bladed disks with small geometric mistuning. The methodology requires only sector-level calculations and therefore can be applied to highly refined, realistic models of industrial size.
