The focus of the present investigation is on the estimation of the dynamic properties, i.e. masses, stiffnesses, natural frequencies, mode shapes and their statistical distributions, of turbomachine blades to be used in the accurate prediction of the forced response of mistuned bladed disks. As input to this process, it is assumed that the lowest natural frequencies of the blades alone have been experimentally measured, for example in a broach block test.

Since the number of measurements is always less than the number of unknowns, this problem is indeterminate in nature. Three distinct approaches will be investigated to resolve the shortfall of data. The first one relies on the imposition of as many constraints as needed to insure a unique solution to this identification problem. Specifically, the mode shapes and modal masses of the blades are set to their design/tuned counterparts while the modal stiffnesses are varied from blade-to-blade to match the measured natural frequencies. The second approach, based on the maximum likelihood principle, yields estimates of all the structural parameters of the blades through the minimization of a specified “cost function”. Finally, the third approach provides a bridge between the first two methods being based on the second but yielding a mistuning model similar to that of the first approach. The accuracy of these three techniques in predicting the forced response of mistuned bladed disks will be assessed on simple dynamic models of the blades.
