A hybrid friction model was recently developed by Azizian and Mureithi [1] to simulate the friction behavior of tube-support interaction. However, identification of the model parameters remains unresolved.

In previous work, the friction model parameters were identified using reverse the harmonic method, where the following quantities were indirectly obtained by measuring the vibration response of a beam: friction force, sliding speed of the force of impact and local displacement at the contact point.

In the present work, the simulation by the finite element method (FEM) of a beam clamped at one end and simply supported with the consideration of friction effect at the other is conducted. This beam is used to validate the inverse harmonic balance method and the parameters of the friction models identified previously.

Two static friction models (the Coulomb model and Stribeck model) are tested. The two models produce friction forces of the correct order of magnitude compared to the friction force calculated using the inverse harmonic balance method. However, the models cannot accurately reproduce the beam response; the Stribeck friction model is shown to give the response closer to experiments.

The results demonstrate some of the challenges associated with accurate friction model parameter identification using the inverse harmonic balance method. The present work is an intermediate step toward identification of the hybrid friction model parameters and, longer term, improved analysis of tube-support dynamic behavior under the influence of friction.
