For the purpose of the efficient analysis of a mistuned bladed disk system, a new analysis method which applies the substructure synthesis method and the modal analysis method is proposed. Using the proposed method, the vibrational characteristics of the grouped blades structure are studied. From the results, it is found that the grouped blades structure is very sensitive to the mistuning. It is also found that the mixed grouped blades structure (a bladed disk system consisting of some different types of grouped blades relating to the number of blades contained) has an undesirable effect on the forced response. Moreover, by comparing the vibrational characteristics of the integral shroud blades (ISB) structure with those of the grouped blades structure, it is clarified that the reliability of the ISB structure is superior to other structures also from the viewpoint of the mistuning.
