A new reduced order model of mistuned bladed disk vibration is presented. This new approach is shown to accurately represent the response of real turbine geometries when only a single family of modes is excited. Yet its mathematical form is even simpler than that of a mass-spring model. Because it requires only minimal input data, this model is much easier to use than previous reduced order methods. Furthermore, its simplicity allows the fundamental parameters that control mistuning to be readily identified.
