The adjoint method shows an efficient way to incorporate inverse dynamics to engineering multibody applications, as, e.g., parameter identification. In case of the identification of parameters in oscillating multibody systems, a combination of Fourier analysis and the adjoint method is an obvious and promising approach. The present paper shows the adjoint method including adjoint Fourier coefficients for the parameter identification of the amplitude response of oscillations. Two examples show the potential and efficiency of the proposed method in multibody dynamics.
