The problem of determining the worst-case mistuning pattern and robust maximum mistuning forced response of a mistuned bladed rotor is formulated and solved as an optimization problem. This approach is exemplified on a two-degrees-of-freedom per blade disk model, two three-degrees-of-freedom per blade disk models, and a mistuned two-stage bladed rotor. The results of the optimum search of the worst-case mistuning patterns for the lumped parameter models are analyzed, which reveals that the maximum blade forced response in a mistuned bladed disk is associated with mistuning jump, which causes strong localization of the vibration response in a particular blade. The mistuning jump-localization phenomenon has been observed for all of the numerical examples, and it is also demonstrated that the highest response was always experienced by a blade of mistuning value jump. The two- and three-degrees-of-freedom per blade disk models are also for determination of its sensitivity coefficients with respect to mistuning variation. Studies show that there is not a threshold of mistuning beyond which the maximum forced response levels off, or even drops, as the degree of mistuning is increased further. The maximum magnification factor is found to increase as the mistuning level is increased and reaches a maximum value at the upper limit of the mistuning level. The influence of the multistage coupling is revealed by comparing the results of single-stage analysis with that of the multistage case. The computed results have been compared with the Monte Carlo simulation produced, and it is demonstrated that the accuracy and efficiency of the maximum amplitude magnification factor computed by the presented method can be better than that of Monte Carlo simulations.
