A harmonic mistuning concept for bladed disks is analyzed in order to intentionally reduce the forced response of specific modes below their tuned amplitude level. By splitting a mode pair associated with a specific nodal diameter pattern, the lightly damped traveling wave mode of the nominally tuned blisk is superposed with its counter-rotating complement. Consequently, a standing wave is formed in which the former wave train benefits from an increase in aerodynamic damping.

Unlike previous analyses of randomly perturbed configurations, the mode-specific stabilization is intentionally promoted through adjusting the harmonic content of the mistuning pattern. Through a re-orientation of the localized mode shapes in relation to the discrete blades, the response is additionally attenuated by an amount of up to 7.6 %. The achievable level of amplitude reduction is analytically predicted based on the properties of the tuned system. Furthermore, the required degree of mistuning for a sufficient separation of a mode pair is derived.
