In this paper, the concept of constrained mode shapes is employed to predict the resonant response of a frictionally constrained blade system. For a tuned blade system, the constrained mode shapes can be calculated using a finite element model of a single blade along with the cyclic symmetry constraint that simulates a fully stuck friction contact. The resulting constrained mode shapes are often complex and can be used to obtain the constrained receptance of the frictionally constrained blade. It is shown that by examining each mode’s contribution to the receptance at the friction contact point, the importance of each individual modes to the prediction of the resonant response of a frictionally constrained blade can be determined. Furthermore, by comparing the receptances calculated from free mode shapes and those from constrained mode shapes, it is found that in the neighborhood of the fully slipping region, the prediction of resonant response requires fewer number of modes when using free mode shapes compared to using constrained mode shapes. On the other hand, in the neighborhood of the fully stuck region, it requires fewer number of modes if constrained mode shapes are used. Therefore, when high preload at the friction contact is desirable, such as for shrouded blade systems, using the constrained mode shapes for the prediction of resonant response is preferred. Moreover, the concept of hybrid receptance is introduced so as to yield very accurate prediction of the resonant response based on only very few vibration modes.
