Abstract

The object of this work was to develop a computer technique for determining the characteristic parameters of spring-mass system with hysteresis effects from transient experimental data. The technique was intended to be utilized to determine the parameters of models of systems where complex geometry and rate dependent properties would make a determination of the model parameters most difficult, and where the parameters typically obtained from static test would not characterize the rate dependent properties accurately.
