This paper presents the first experimental-numerical comparison of a bladed system with 1 flexible strip dampers. The experimental results explore the in-phase and out-of-phase mode of 2 vibration of two blades coupled by a strip. The great influence the mode of vibration has on the strip 3 behaviour and consequent effect on the blades’ response is highlighted, analyzed and successfully 4 simulated numerically. 5 The experimental campaign is made possible by a purposely developed loading system based on 6 compressed air. This non-contact system enables the experimenter to apply a realistic value of 7 contact pressure on the strip without adding spurious stiffness to the system or modifying the contact 8 conditions. 9 The availability of experimental data obtained by imposing realistic contact conditions constitutes 10 a true added value. It is here shown how the full stick linear FRFs, typically used to predict the 11 response in case of limited excitation on blades coupled by rigid dampers, do not offer significant 12 results in the case of flexible strip dampers.
