In turbine engine discs with many bolts or heavy bolts, you may want to consider optimizing the arrangement of bolts to aid in overall stage unbalance. In turbine engines like the J44 with a bladed disc with blades all as one piece, there is not an option to arrange the blades. Bolt balancing can aid in producing a better balanced stage.
The basic process is similar to optimizing blade arrangements.
