This paper presents a new approach for the parametric identification of nonlinear systems. The approach is based on subjecting a nonlinear system to a strong high-frequency excitation and monitoring its influence on the slow modulation of the system’s response which occurs near its natural frequency. The identification procedure is outlined and numerically implemented on a Duffing-type system with unknown quadratic and cubic nonlinearities. The proposed technique is then implemented to identify the nonlinear parameters of three different experimental systems. Results demonstrate that the proposed approach predicts the nonlinear parameters with good accuracy.
