Abstract

The spin test is a standard industrial practice employed for the qualification of rotor blades and disks. The expected results are the modal properties of blades and assemblages at different rotation velocities. If a significant dynamic coupling among the blades exists, global vibration modes appear, reflecting into a set of closely spaced natural frequencies for each mode family. In case of perfectly-Tuned bladed disks, the circumferential structure of the mode shapes is known and can be exploited during the identification process so that traditional single-dof models may be applied. On the contrary, the mode irregularities produced by mistuning prevents the use of single-dof models requiring the development of more sophisticated approaches. In this work, we propose a multi-dof identification technique organized as follow: 1) the FRF of the bladed disk in the neighborhood of a resonance crossing is identified by the wavelet transform of the measured response; 2) the modal parameters of the system are estimated using a mixed stochastic-deterministic subspace algorithm formulated in the frequency domain. The procedure is validated using a realistic numerical simulation.
