This paper investigates the comparison of the measured and predicted force-displacement loops of a multiaxial representative fretting fatigue test rig for aeroengine spline couplings. A local finite element model of the fretting specimen and the fretting bridge is outlined. A more extensive model of the fretting test rig is then introduced. This global model also includes the loading structures. The model captures the compliance of the fretting test rig and improves the correlation of the observed hysteresis. This method allows the slip amplitude at the contacts to be quantified.
