This paper develops a damping strategy for the vibration reduction of a mistuned bladed disk (blisk) by depositing hard coating on its blades, and systematically investigates the vibration characteristics of the hard-coated mistuned (HCM) blisk. By using an improved fixed-interface component modal synthesis method (fixed-ICMSM), a reduced-order model (ROM) of the HCM blisk is established. Then, based on the proposed ROM, solutions of eigenvalue equations are carried out to obtain the natural frequencies and mode shapes. Further, modal loss factors and a damping matrix of the HCM blisk are achieved by taking advantage of the modal strain energy method and the proportional damping model, respectively. Moreover, the frequency response function of the HCM blisk, which can exhibit dynamic behaviors, was deduced. Finally, a mistuned blisk with a deposited NiCoCrAlY + YSZ hard coating on both sides of the blades is chosen as a study case to conduct a finite element analysis, and the results are compared with those obtained from the experimental test in terms of natural frequencies and mode shapes. The variation of the natural frequencies, the modal loss factors, and the frequency response function generated by the NiCoCrAlY + YSZ hard coating are studied, and the influence of coating area on damping capacity is further discussed.
