Modified modal domain analysis (MMDA) is a novel method for the development of a reduced order model of a bladed rotor with geometric mistuning. This method utilizes proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) of coordinate measurement machine (CMM) data on blades' geometries, and sector analyses using ansys and solid modeling. In a recent paper, MMDA has been extended to use second order Taylor series approximations of perturbations in mass and stiffness matrices (δM and δK) instead of exact δM and δK. Taylor series expansions of deviations in mass and stiffness matrices due to geometric mistuning give a direct approach for generating the reduced order model from the components of POD features of spatial variations in blades' geometries. Reversing the process, algorithms for mistuning identification based on MMDA are presented in this paper to calculate the geometric mistuning parameters. Two types of algorithm, one based on modal analyses and the other on the forced responses, are presented. The validity of these methods are then verified through a mistuned academic rotor.
