The efficient dynamic stress assessment of turbine blades is of prime importance in turbomachinery design. An accurate prediction of forced response level of shrouded blades requires a very detailed finite element model in addition to a nonlinear solver. In order to perform nonlinear forced response analysis of blades at an affordable computational cost, applying a model order reduction technique is essential. The appeal for component mode synthesis methods in dimension reduction of structures with friction contacts is due to the possibility of retaining a subset of physical degrees of freedom (e.g. the contact degrees of freedom) in the set of generalized coordinates. In this paper, a reduction method recently developed for nonlinear forced response analysis of structures with local nonlinearity is evaluated and compared with two classical component mode synthesis reduction techniques. All three methods have the same projection basis, which includes residual flexibility attachment modes and free interface modes, but different implementation. The response is computed in the frequency domain using multiharmonic balance method and periodic contact forces are modeled with a node-to-node 3D friction contact model. In order to demonstrate the efficiency of the three formulations, a rod and a simplified shrouded turbine blade are considered as case studies.
