Abstract

An algorithm to generate a reduced order model of a multistage rotor in which each stage has a different number of blades has been developed. It is shown that a reduced order model can be developed on the basis of tuned modes of certain bladed disks which can be easily obtained via sector analyses. Further, it is shown that the reduced order model can also be obtained when blades are geometrically mistuned. This algorithm is similar to the modified modal domain analysis, which has been recently developed for a single-stage bladed rotor with geometric mistuning. The validity of this algorithm is shown for the finite element model of a two-stage bladed rotor. In addition, the statistical distributions of peak maximum amplitudes and natural frequencies of a two-stage rotor are generated via Monte Carlo simulations for different patterns of geometric mistuning.
