Mistuning, imperfections in cyclical symmetry of bladed disks is an inevitable and perilous occurrence due to many factors including manufacturing tolerances and in-service wear and tear. It can cause some unpredictable phenomena such as mode splitting, mode localization and dramatic difference in forced vibration response. In this paper first, a method is presented which calculates the forced vibration response of a mistuned system based on an exact relationship between tuned and mistuned systems. Then, the genetic algorithm is used for solving an optimization problem to find the worst-case response of bladed-disk assembly. The second part tries to find methods to reduce the system worst-case response. Intentional mistuning which breaks the nominal symmetry of a tuned bladed disk and rearranging the bladed-disk assembly are introduced and used to reduce the system worst-case response. Finally, a two degree of freedom per blade simplified model with 56 blades is used to demonstrate the capabilities of the techniques in reducing the worst response of the bladed-disk system.
