This paper deals with the computation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a mistuned bladed disk. First, the existence of derivatives of repeated eigenvalues and corresponding eigenvectors is discussed. Next, an algorithm is developed to compute these derivatives. It is shown how a Taylor series expansion can be used to efficiently compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a mistuned system. Numerical examples are presented to corroborate the validity of theoretical analysis.
