In this paper, a new method for simultaneously estimating Coulomb and viscous friction parameters from the free vibration of a damped oscillator is put forward. In the method, the nonlinear vibration equation with Coulomb and viscous friction is transformed into a linear procedure with equivalent viscous damping which is a function of velocity. The proposed method works well with both the displacement and velocity response data, while the case of zero velocity is not considered. From the displacement decaying curve, the equivalent viscous damping ratios are obtained by means of the local exponential fitting method, and different velocities corresponding to the equivalent viscous damping ratios are also obtained from the velocity decaying curve. Then, according to the relationship between the equivalent viscous damping ratio and the velocity, the Coulomb friction and the viscous damping are achieved using the least square method. The validity and accuracy of the proposed method are demonstrated through good simulation results.
