For the high damping metal material like damping alloy, the damping capacity usually changes with the strain amplitude and frequency nonlinearly. First, to extract the pattern of the internal damping versus strain, two time-domain calculation methods are presented in this paper. One is the moving exponent method (MEM for short) based on FFT (MEM+FFT) and the other is the moving autoregressive model method (MARM). The computing accuracy of the two methods has been compared through numerical simulations. The nonlinear relation curve of loss factor versus strain is achieved by the impulse excitation experiment employing uniform stress field. Then, to extract the pattern of the internal damping versus vibrating frequency, the sine sweep-frequency excitation experiment based on the half-power bandwidth method is carried out. The resulting curve indicates that the internal damping is also a nonlinear function of frequency.
