A simple methodology for identification and quantification of nonlinear effects such as Coulomb friction and backlash is desired for use in condition based maintenance programs for both structural and machine based applications. Typically, structural applications are passive and undergo small vibratory motion when an external excitation is presented to the system. A spring-mass system was used as the structural example. Machine applications are typically active and motion is excited by internal actuation of large motion within the system. An industrial SCARA robot was used as the machine based example. The Hilbert transform was tested for detection and quantification of Coulomb friction in both systems.
