In turbomachinery applications bladed disks and blisks are subjected to high dynamic loads due to fluctuating gas forces. The dynamic excitation results in high vibration amplitudes which can lead to high cycle fatigue failures (HCF). Herein, the blades are almost identical but differ due to wear or small manufacturing tolerances. These small deviations of the blade properties can lead to a localization of the vibrational energy in single blades and even higher risk of HCF. Intentional mistuning, for example an alternating alignment of two different blades AB around the blisk, has been studied in literature to decrease the sensitivity against statistical mistuning. Using a Component Mode Synthesis (CMS) based mistuning model the influence of intentional mistuning on blisks is analyzed in this paper. Therein, the CMS of the disk is calculated with a fast and accurate cyclic symmetry approach. Therefore, the CMS of the disk can be calculated with one disk segment of the underlying Finite Element Model. The so called Wave Based Substructuring (WBS) is used to reduce the (numerous) coupling degrees of freedom between the disk and the blades with a truncated set of waves. The orthogonal waves are derived with a Singular Value Decomposition or a QR decomposition from the normal modes at the coupling degrees of freedom (DOF) calculated by a cyclic modal analysis of the full structure. In a case study the Reduced Order Model (ROM) of a spatial Finite Element Model is used to determine the influence of intentional mistuning with additional statistical mistuning on the forced response of blisks.
