High-cycle fatigue caused by large resonance stresses remains one of the most common causes of turbine blade failures. Harmonic Balance Method is an efficient technique to model the nonlinear vibration of turbomachinery components. The first part of the presentation will present the HBM and the continuation methods. In the second part we will focus on friction damping. Friction dampers are one of the most effective and practical solutions to limit the vibration amplitudes, and shift the resonance frequencies of the turbine assemblies far from operating speeds. However, predicting the effects of underplatform dampers on the dynamics of the blades with good accuracy still represents a major challenge today, due to the complex nature of the nonlinear forces at the interface, characterised by transitions between stick, slip, and separation conditions. The most common modelling approaches developed recently are based on the explicit FE model for the damper, and on a dense grid of 3D contact elements comprised of Jenkins elements, or on a single 2D microslip element on each surface. In this paper, a combination of the two approaches is proposed. A 3D microslip element, based on a modified Valanis model is proposed and a series of these elements are used to describe the contact interface.
