Abstract

Abstract Experimental testing of a friction damped base isolation system has indicated a need for a new model of friction damping and for an appropriate equivalent linearization technique. The model for the damping adopted is a combination of viscous damping, constant Coulomb friction and linear Coulomb friction. This model is incorporated into the equation of motion for a single-degree-of-freedom system and the exact solutions are given for free vibrations and for steady-state vibrations excited by a harmonic force. The exact solution is taken as a basis for an equivalent linearization technique that can be used in conjunction with conventional design spectra for a practical design of such a system.
