It is well-known that the vibrational behavior of a mistuned bladed disk differs strongly from that of a tuned bladed disk. A large number of publications dealing with the dynamics of mistuned bladed disks is available in the literature. The vibrational phenomena analyzed in these publications are either forced vibrations or self-excited flutter vibrations. Nearly all published literature on the forced vibrations of mistuned blades disks considers harmonic, i. e. steady-state, vibrations, whereas the self-excited flutter vibrations are analyzed by the evaluation of the margin against instabilities by means of a modal, or rather than eigenvalue, analysis. The transient forced response of mistuned bladed disk is not analyzed in detail so far. In this paper, a computationally efficient mechanical model of a mistuned bladed disk to compute the transient forced response is presented. This model is based on the well-known Fundamental Model of Mistuning. With this model, the statistics of the transient forced response of a mistuned bladed disk is analyzed and compared to the results of harmonic forced response analysis.
