A reduced-order model has been developed that can be used to accurately and quickly calculate the changes in the natural frequencies and mode shapes of a blade that are caused by centrifugal stiffening. It has been corroborated by comparisons with finite element analyses of a cantilevered tapered plate and with frequencies from a low aspect ratio fan blade.
