In structural dynamics, the problem of damping remains the biggest challenge. This paper deals with the energy losses caused by micro-slip in a planar interface of a structure. Taking into account friction in the joints during the analysis of dynamic systems remains a complex task. This paper proposes an analytical and experimental study of flexural vibrations of a clamped-clamped beam with innovative position of the interfaces. First, the benchmark is described and the choice of the position of the interface is justified. The displacement and stress fields are defined during each phase of the loading process in the joints under the assumption of quasi static motion. The energy dissipated by friction in the interface is calculated during a loading cycle. This leads to a definition of the dissipated energy, thus, to a non linear loss factor. The dynamic response of the beam is calculated using this non linear loss factor and a dissipative force is defined and used to predict the dynamic behaviour of the structure. In the last part of the paper, we present the experimental bench, and the dynamic behaviour of this structure. We propose to illustrate the mechanism of energy losses by micro-slip by making a comparison between the behaviour of the “monolithic” beam and the sectioned beam. Finally, we confront the loss factor calculated analytically and the measured one.
