The paper presents the results of a study looking into changes in the forced response levels of bladed disc assemblies subject to both structural and aerodynamic mistuning. A whole annulus FE model, representative of a civil aero-engine fan with 26 blades was used in the calculations. The forced response of all blades of 1000 random mistuned patterns was calculated. The aerodynamic parameters, frequency shifts and damping, were calculated using a three-dimensional Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes aero-elasticity code. They were randomly varied for each mistuning pattern, with the assumption that the system would remain stable, i.e. flutter would not occur due to aerodynamic mistuning. The results show the variation of the forced response with different types of mistuning, with structural mistuning only, with aerodynamic mistuning only and with both structural and aerodynamic mistuning.
