This paper is devoted to the robust modeling and prediction of limit cycle oscillations in nonlinear dynamic friction systems with a random friction coefficient. In recent studies, the Wiener–Askey and Wiener–Haar expansions have been proposed to deal with these problems with great efficiency. In these studies, the random dispersion of the friction coefficient is always considered within intervals near the Hopf bifurcation point. However, it is well known that friction induced vibrations—with respect to the distance of the friction dispersion interval to the Hopf bifurcation point—have different properties in terms of tansient, frequency and amplitudes. So, the main objective of this study is to analyze the capabilities of the Wiener–Askey (general polynomial chaos, multielement generalized polynomial chaos) and Wiener–Haar expansions to be efficient in the modeling and prediction of limit cycle oscillations independently of the location of the instability zone with respect to the Hopf bifurcation point.
