Receptance coupling substructure analysis (RCSA) is extensively used to determine the dynamic response of milling tool at its tip for the purpose of prediction of machining stability. A major challenge in using this approach is the proper modelling of the joint between the substructures and determination of its parameters. In this paper, an inverse RCSA is developed for experimental extraction of tool-holder frequency response function (FRF) including joint parameters. The accuracy and efficiency of this method is evaluated through an analytical investigation. It is shown that the extracted holder FRF can provide a highly accurate prediction of the tool tip FRF. The developed method is used in prediction of tool tip FRF with different values of the tool overhang. The proposed approach is validated through experimental validation.
