This paper is focused on the optimization of friction element parameters in blade shrouds for various types of excitation. In order to create and validate a proper modelling methodology an experimental stand and a numerical simulation of blades interaction by means of a friction element placed in the shrouds were prepared. Mathematical models are based on the finite element method combined with rigid bodies. The interaction of the friction element and blades is described by normal contact and tangential friction forces derived for particular geometrical parameters of the studied mechanical system. The models can be analyzed both in frequency domain (by the harmonic balance method) or in time domain (by the numerical integration). The results of the optimization of friction element parameters with respect to the bending vibration suppression are documented in the paper. Another contact modelling approach intended for more complex contact surfaces is based on the decomposition of a contact surface into a set of elementary areas and on the expression of contact and friction forces between these areas. All methodologies are implemented in the MATLAB system and the results for the chosen test cases are compared with the results obtained by a measurement or by the ANSYS software.
