Abstract : The problems associated with uneven forced response vibration amplitudes in bladed disk assemblies is considered in the report. It is established that uneven vibration amplitudes arise principally by the destruction of cyclic-symmetry by some small perturbations usually within the component manufacturing tolerances. Such perturbations first split some of the eigenvalue degeneracies inherent in all cyclic systems. This split in turn gives rise to the modal bifurcation phenomenon. Particular forms of the modal phenomenon give rise to the uneven vibration amplitudes and under some restricted conditions to the mode localization phenomenon. In this report, group theory, singularity theory and singular perturbation theory are combined to give a complete analysis of uneven amplitudes and mode localization; as a prelude to blade vibration control.
