Peng, Z.K., Lang, Z.Q. and Billings, S.A. (2007) Linear parameter estimation for multi-degree-of-freedom nonlinear systems using nonlinear output frequency-response functions. Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing, 21 (8). pp. 3108-3122. ISSN 0888-3270
The Volterra series approach has been widely used for the analysis of nonlinear systems. Based on the Volterra series, a novel concept named Nonlinear Output Frequency Response Functions (NOFRFs) was proposed by the authors. This concept can be considered as an alternative extension of the classical frequency response function for linear systems to the nonlinear case. In this study, based on the NOFRFs, a novel algorithm is developed to estimate the linear stiffness and damping parameters of multi-degree-of-freedom (MDOF) nonlinear systems. The validity of this NOFRF based parameter estimation algorithm is demonstrated by numerical studies.
