Abstract: The frequency mistuning that occurs due to manufacturing variations and wear and tear of the blades has been shown to significantly affect the flutter and forced response behavior of a blade row. While tuned computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analyses are now an integral part of the design process, designers need a fast method to evaluate the localized high blade responses due to mistuning. In this research, steady and unsteady analyses are conducted on the second-stage rotor of an axial compressor, excited at…
