Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper is dedicated to the damping identification problem. Short outlook of damping identification methods is given in the first part of the paper. All these methods can successfully identify internal damping of free-moving structures but it becomes problematically to correctly estimate damping forces when the structure is fixed and there are some joints. The recent methods of structural damping identification don't give a full understanding of dissipation problem too. An explanation of damping-frequency relation features based on the existence of another damping nature, external damping for example, is proposed in this paper. These assumptions are demonstrated by the modal parameters identification of a turbine blade.
