[en] The experimental determination of the vibration characteristics of rotating engine blades is very important for fatigue failure considerations. One of the most promising techniques for measuring the frequency of blade vibrations is blade tip timing. In this paper, three vibration analysis methods were specifically formulated and applied to the tip timing problem for the first time, using data obtained from a simple mathematical blade tip timing simulation. The results from the methods were compared statistically in order to determine which of the techniques is more suitable. One of the methods, the global autoregressive instrumental variables approach, produced satisfactory results at realistic noise levels. However, all of the techniques produced biased results under certain circumstances.
