Volterra series provides a structured analytical platform for modeling and identification of nonlinear systems. The series has been widely used in nonparametric identification through higher order frequency response functions or FRFs. A parametric identification procedure based on recursive evaluation of response harmonic amplitude series is presented here. The procedure is experimentally investigated for a rotor-bearing system supported in rolling element bearings. The estimates of nonlinear bearing stiffness obtained from experimentation have been compared with analytical values and experimental results of previous works.
