A three dimensional numerical friction contact model is proposed to investigate the nonlinear vibration of damped blade. The model describes the discrete friction forces in the time domain. By using Discrete Fourier Transforms, the discrete friction forces can be transformed into a series of harmonic functions which are used to solve the nonlinear vibration of damped blade in the frequency domain. The difference between static friction coefficient and dynamic friction coefficient is considered in the model. To consider microslip effect, an array of spring-slider contact pairs (friction contact model) is distributed on the contact surfaces. Additionally, the effect of area of the contact surface on the vibration of damped blade can be studied by altering the number of the contact pairs. Finally, the nonlinear vibration of a real turbine blade with shrouded friction dampers is solved using the proposed friction contact model, Multi-Harmonic Balance Method and Receptance Method.
