In Blade Tip Timing several sensors installed circumferentially in the casing are used to record times of arrival (TOA) and observe deflections of blade tips. This paper aims to demonstrate methodology of model-based processing of aliased data. It focuses on the blade vibration excited by the forces synchronous with engine rotation, which are called integral responses. The driven harmonic oscillator with single degree of freedom (SDOF) is used to analyse blade vibration measured by tip-timing

When integral engine order EO is known, the linear sine fitting techniques can be used to process data from sensors to estimate amplitude, phase and frequency of blade vibration in each rotation. The oscillator model is implemented in MATLAB and used to generate resonance curves and simulate blade responses observed with tip sensors, installed in the axial compressor. Generated TOA data are fitted to the sine function to estimate vibration parameters. The validated procedure is then employed to analyze real test data.
