In this paper a methodology for forced response calculation of bladed disks with underplatform dampers is described. The FE disk model, supposed to be cyclically symmetric, is reduced by means of Component Mode Synthesis and then DOFs lying at interfaces are further reduced by means of interface modes. Underplatform dampers are modeled as rigid bodies translating both in the radial and in the tangential direction of the engine. Contacts between blade platforms and damper are simulated by means of contact elements characterized by both tangential and normal contact stiffness, allowing partial separation of contact surfaces. Differential equilibrium equations are turned in non-linear algebraic equations by means of the Harmonic Balance Method (HBM). The methodology is implemented in a numerical code for forced response calculation of frictionally damped bladed disks. Numerical calculations are performed to evaluate the effectiveness of both the reduced order model and the underplatform model in simulating the dynamic behavior of bladed disks in presence of underplatform dampers.
