We investigate non-parametric identification of the frequency dependent complex modulus of a viscoelastic material, using a non-equilibrium split Hopkinson pressure bar technique. Three different procedures for estimating the complex modulus from experimental data are considered, and an analysis of the quality of the estimates is carried out. The validity of the theoretical results are confirmed by numerical studies and experimental tests.
