Shrouded bladed disks exhibit a nonlinear dynamic behavior due to the contact interfaces at shrouds between neighboring blades. As a result, reduced order models (ROMs) are mandatory to compute the response levels during the design phase for high cycle fatigue (HCF) life assessment. In this paper, two reduction strategies for shrouded bladed disk reduction are presented. Both approaches rely on: (i) the cyclic symmetry of the linear bladed disk with open shrouds to perform only single sector calculations, (ii) the Craig–Bampton (CB) method to reduce the number of physical degrees of freedom (dofs). The two approaches are applied to a set of test cases in order to evaluate and compare their accuracy and the associated computational effort. Although both approaches allow for generating accurate ROMs, it is found that the numerical efficiency of the two methods depends on the ratio of the number of nodes at the inter-sector interfaces over the number of inner nodes of the elementary sector model.
