This paper presents important improvements and extensions to a computationally efficient reduced order modeling technique for the vibration analysis of mistuned bladed disks. In particular, this work shows how the existing modeling technique is readily extended to turbomachinery rotors with shrouded blades. The modeling technique employs a component mode synthesis approach to systematically generate a reduced order model (ROM) using component modes calculated from a finite element model (FEM) of the rotor. Based on the total number of degrees of freedom, the ROM is typically two or three orders of magnitude smaller than the FEM. This makes it feasible to predict the forced response statistics of mistuned bladed disks using Monte Carlo simulations. In this work, particular attention is devoted to the introduction of mistuning into the ROM of a shrouded assembly. Mistuning is modeled by projecting the mistuned natural frequencies of a single, cantilever blade with free shrouds onto the harmonic modes of the shrouded blade assembly. Thus, the necessary mistuning information may be measured by testing individual blades.
