This paper is focused on the analysis of effects of mistuning on the forced response of gas-turbine bladed discs vibrating in the frequency ranges corresponding to higher modes. For high modes the blade aerofoils are deformed during vibrations and the blade mode shapes differ significantly from beam mode shapes. A model reduction technique is developed for the computationally efficient and accurate analysis of forced response for bladed discs vibrating in high frequency ranges. High-fidelity finite element models of a tuned bladed disc sector are used to provide primary information about dynamic properties of a bladed disc and the blade mistuning is modelled by specially defined mistuning matrices. The forced response displacement and stress amplitude levels are studied for high frequency ranges. The effects of different types of mistuning are examined and the existence of high amplifications of mistuned forced response levels is shown for high-mode vibrations: in some cases, the resonance peak response of a tuned structure can be lower than out-of-resonance amplitudes of its mistuned counterpart.
