Method of identifying nonlinear characteristic of energy dissipation in dynamic systems with one degree of freedom


A method of determining the shape of the vibration damping characteristic in systems with one degree of freedom in the case when the characteristic depends not only on the velocity but also in an unknown way depends on the displacement has been developed. The method is intended for determining the specific form of the mathematical function describing this dependence. The method utilizes an appropriate analysis of experimentally determined traces of free vibrations of the system. The method has been verified on a few selected computer systems.
