Advanced structural dynamic models for both wedge and split underplatform dampers have been developed. The new damper models take into account inertia forces and the effects of normal load variation on stick-slip transitions at the contact interfaces. The damper models are formulated for the general case of multiharmonic forced response analysis. An approach for using the new damper models in the dynamic analysis of large-scale finite element models of bladed discs is proposed and realised. Numerical investigations of bladed discs are performed to demonstrate the capabilities of the new models and an analysis of the influence of the damper parameters on the forced response of bladed discs is made.
