Most usually damping in a blade is attributed to material and friction damping. Friction damping can be either due to Macroslip obeying Coulomb laws of friction or Microslip (also called Fretting Fatigue) which occurs at high critical speeds with tight blade-disk junctions due to heavy centrifugal loads. This paper is concerned with microslip damping which is conventionally determined through tests.
