New geometric mistuning approaches for integrally bladed rotors (IBRs) are developed for incorporating geometric perturbations to a fundamental disk-blade sector, particularly the disk-blade boundary, or connection. The developed Reduced Oder Models (ROMs) are formulated from a Craig-Bampton component mode synthesis (C-B CMS) framework that is further reduced by a truncated set of interface modes that are obtained from an eigen-analysis of the C-B CMS constraint degrees of freedom (DOFs). An investigation into using a set of tuned interface modes and tuned constraint modes for model reduction is then performed. A tuned mode approximation has the added benefit of being only calculated once which offers significant computational savings for subsequent analyses. Two configurations of disk-blade connection mistuning are investigated: as-measured principal component deviations and random perturbations to the inter-blade spacing. Furthermore, the perturbation sizes are amplified to investigate the significance of incorporating mistuned disk-blade connection. Free and forced response results are obtained for each ROM and each disk-blade connection type and compared to full finite element model (FEM) solutions. It is shown that the developed methods provide highly accurate results with a significant reduction in solution time compared to the full FEM. In addition, results indicate that the inclusion of a mistuned disk-blade connection becomes significant as the size of the geometric deviations at the connection become large.
