Modified modal domain analysis (MMDA), a reduced order modeling technique, is applied to a geometrically mistuned integrally bladed rotor to obtain its natural frequencies, mode shapes, and forced response. The geometric mistuning of blades is described in terms of proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) of the coordinate measurement machine (CMM) data. Results from MMDA are compared to those from the full (360 deg) rotor Ansys model. It is found that the MMDA can accurately predict natural frequencies, mode shapes, and forced response. The effects of the number of POD features and the number of tuned modes used as bases for model reduction are examined. Results from frequency mistuning approaches, fundamental mistuning model (FMM) and subset of nominal modes (SNM), are also generated and compared to those from full (360 deg) rotor Ansys model. It is clearly seen that FMM and SNM are unable to yield accurate results whereas MMDA yields highly accurate results.
