The present work deals with the effect of rotation on the adiabatic oscillation frequencies of stellar models. Here, rotation, as described in a perturbation theory, is said to be rapid in the sense that second order perturbation effects have to be taken into account. Rotation has two second order effects on the oscillation frequencies: departure from equidistance within a given multiplet split by rotation and an overall shift of the multiplet itself. The first effect has been investigated for realistic models of δ Scuti stars in uniform rotation (Dziembowski & Goode, 1992), whereas H. Saio’s study includes both effects for a polytrope of index 3 in uniform rotation (Saio 1981). Both effects are investigated for realistic models of δ Scuti stars. Results for the overall shift for a 2 M ⊙ model in rapid uniform rotation (v up to ∼ 200 km/s) are outlined below. The rotation rate corresponding to this surface velocity is Ω = 1.44 10−4 rad/s.
