Current efforts to model multistage turbomachinery systems rely on calculating independent constraint modes for each degree-of-freedom (DOF) on the boundary between stages. While this approach works, it is computationally expensive to calculate all the required constraint modes. This paper presents a new way to calculate a reduced set of constraint modes referred to as Fourier constraint modes (FCMs). These FCMs greatly reduce the number of computations required to construct a multistage reduced order model (ROM). The FCM method can also be integrated readily with the component mode mistuning (CMM) method to handle small mistuning and the pristine rogue interface modal expansion (PRIME) method to handle large and/or geometric mistuning. These methods all use sector-level models and calculations, which make them very efficient. This paper demonstrates the efficiency of the FCM method on a multistage system that is tuned and, for the first time, creates a multistage ROM with large mistuning using only sector-level quantities and calculations. The results of the multistage ROM for the tuned and large mistuning cases are compared with full finite element results and are found in good agreement.
