Vibrating flip-flow screens provide an effective means of screening highly viscous or fine materials, and the dynamic characteristics of the main and the floating screen frames are largely responsible for a flip-flow screen’s screen performance and its processing capacity. An accurate dynamic model of the rubber shear springs used within the frame of the screen is critical for its dynamic analysis – to understand deficiencies and improve its performance. In this paper, the Sjöberg model is used to predict the frequency-and amplitude-dependent behaviour of the rubber shear springs. A friction model represents the amplitude dependency of the rubber shear springs. The fractional derivative model is used to describe its frequency dependency with its elasticity being represented by a linear spring. This model is further validated by cyclic tests of the rubber shear springs. Furthermore, dynamic response of the VFFS have been analysed using the Sjöberg model and the Kelvin-Voigt model, respectively. Experimental results indicate that dynamic response of VFFS can be better predict using the Sjöberg model than Kelvin-Voigt model in time region as well as in the frequency domain.
