A recent paper explored a potential deficiency in the single frequency harmonic response structural dynamic analysis approach typically used to assess a resonant condition in turbomachinery flow path components. This deficiency is prevalent in supersonic flow conditions when non-adjacent stages are present. The previous investigation demonstrated other excitation sources present in complex or supersonic flows could be missed using the typical analysis approach, in some cases leading to large under-prediction of structural response when compared with a baseline transient analysis. This paper presents the results of a follow on study, in which the inclusion of these effects in dynamic analyses is investigated. A representative rotor was created and analyzed for forced response characteristics when individual and combined unsteady content was present. A simple shell and beam 2D model was used to study the forced response behavior using transient and harmonic analyses. The results showed a significant contribution from non-integer forcing as well as from certain integer order forcing. A 3D model was also created for future analysis but did not display the sideband characteristics similar to flow seen in the previous investigation.
