A method is proposed for fitting the so-called contact stiffnesses (CSs) of interface elements for a nonlinear dynamic model (NDM) of a bladed disk with integral contact couplings. The method is based on comparison between frequencies of the resonant response of NDM and known natural frequencies in limiting linear cases. For this purpose, an effective approach for calculation of the resonant response NDM is presented allowing CSs to be picked individually. The method is demonstrated for the case of steam turbine bladed disk equipped with 48 inch blades.
