A method has been developed for frequency domain analysis of steady state forced response in gas turbine engines in the presence of rubbing and snubbing contacts between bladed discs and casing and between other rotor and stator engine components. The multiharmonic contact interface elements have been derived for modelling the nonlinear contact interactions: (i) at bearings and (ii) bladed disc-casing rubbing contacts with using flexible models for rotor and stator structures. The elements allow for the asymmetry of the casing, the discrete blade contacts with casing, individual blade-casing gap values, nonlinear dependency of the contact forces on rotor-stator incursion and friction forces, intermittent contacts between blades and the casing. High accuracy and computational efficiency of the methods and models developed has been demonstrated on a set of test cases and on an example of analysis of a realistic gas turbine structure.
