A method for non-linear modal analysis of mechanical systems with contact and friction interfaces is proposed. It is based on a frequency domain formulation of the dynamical system's equations of motion. The dissipative aspects of these non-linearities result in complex eigensolutions and the modal parameters (natural frequency and modal damping) can be obtained without any assumptions on the external excitation. The generality of this approach makes it possible to address any kind of periodic regimes, in free and forced response. In particular, stability analysis in flutter applications can be performed. Applications for the design of friction ring dampers for blisks and for the dynamical simulation of bladed disk with dovetail attachment are proposed. Finally, we propose a study of dynamical behaviour coupling with the calculation of fretting-wear at the interfaces based on non-linear modal characterization.
