Mistuning Identification of Integrally Bladed Disks With Cascaded Optimization and Neural Networks

Mistuning affects forced response of bladed disks drastically; therefore, its identification plays an essential role in the forced response analysis of bladed disk assemblies. Forced response analysis of mistuned bladed disk assemblies has drawn wide attention of researchers but there are a very limited number of studies dealing with identification of mistuning, especially if the component under consideration is an integrally bladed disk (blisk). This paper presents two new methods to identify mistuning of a bladed disk from the assembly modes via utilizing cascaded optimization and neural networks. It is assumed that a tuned mathematical model of the blisk under consideration is readily available, which is always the case for today's realistic bladed disk assemblies. In the first method, a data set of selected mode shapes and natural frequencies is created by a number of simulations performed by mistuning the tuned mathematical model randomly. A neural network created by considering the number of modes, is then trained with this data set. Upon training the network, it is used to identify mistuning of the rotor from measured data. The second method further improves the first one by using it as a starting point of an optimization routine and carries out an optimization to identify mistuning. To carry out identification analysis by means of the proposed methods, there are no limitations on the number of modes or natural frequencies to be used. Thus, unlike existing mistuning identification methods they are suitable for incomplete data as well. Moreover, since system modes are used rather than blade alone counterparts, the techniques are ready to be used for analysis of blisks. Case studies are performed to demonstrate the capabilities of the new methods by using two different mathematical models to create training data sets a lumped-parameter model and a relatively realistic reduced order model. Throughout the case studies, the effects of using incomplete mode families and random errors in assembly modes are investigated. The results show that, the proposed method utilizing cascaded optimization and neural networks can identify mistuning parameters of a realistic blisk system with an exceptional accuracy even in the presence of incomplete and noisy test data.


Vibration induced stress and accelerated life analyses of an aerospace structure
Özsoy, Serhan; Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
Fatigue failure of metallic structures operating under dynamic loading is a common occurrence in engineering applications. It is difficult to estimate the response of complicated systems analytically, due to structure̕s dynamic characteristics and varying loadings. Therefore, experimental, numerical or a combination of both methods are used for fatigue evaluations. Fatigue failure can occur on systems and platforms as well as components to be mounted on the platform. In this thesis, a helicopter̕s Missile W...
On the non-linear vibration and mistuning identification of bladed disks
Yümer , Mehmet Ersin; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
Forced response analysis of bladed disk assemblies plays a vital role in rotor blade design and has been drawing a great deal of attention both from research community and engine industry for more than half a century. However because of the phenomenon called ‘mistuning’, which destroys the cyclic symmetry of a rotor, there have been several difficulties related to forced response analysis ever since, two of which are addressed in this thesis: efficient non-linear forced response analysis of mistuned bladed ...
Vibration fatigue analysis of structures installed on air platforms
Eldoğan, Yusuf; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
Although a component satisfies all operating static requirements, failures can still occur due to vibration induced fatigue. Vibration induced fatigue is a frequent phenomenon, in cases where the natural frequencies of the structures are excited by the loading. Hence, the methods which consider all dynamic characteristic of the structure should be used to obtain accurate fatigue life predictions. These methods in frequency domain are called vibration fatigue methods which give accurate, reliable and fast re...
Die stress and friction behaviour analysis in bolt farming
Aygen, Mert; Kılıç, S. Engin; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
In cold forming operations, tool geometry has a direct influence on the product quality, forming force, load acting on dies and tool life. Finite element method provides a means to analyse these parameters to predict forming defects and die failures. In this study, shrink fitting the components of a bolt forming die is modelled and the finite element results are compared with the analytical solutions and experiments. In order to perform die stress analyses, deformable die models are implemented in the forgi...
Singularity robust inverse dynamics of planar 2-RPR parallel manipulators
Ider, SK (SAGE Publications, 2004-07-01)
In planar parallel robots, limitations occur in the functional workspace because of interference of the legs with each other and because of drive singularities where the actuators lose control of the moving platform and the actuator forces grow without bounds. A 2-RPR (revolute, prismatic, revolute joints) planar parallel manipulator with two legs that minimizes the interference of the mechanical components is considered. Avoidance of the drive singularities is in general not desirable since it reduces the ...
