A methodology for modeling guided by its characteristic damping diagrams is proposed. From experimental data generated by standard tests the damper characteristic diagrams are constructed, which considers the force versus displacement, velocity and acceleration for the frequencies of interest. These characteristic diagrams can be classified into seven patterns, which serve as a guide to build the same mathematical model that can be identified with algorithms conventional. The methodology was validated with four different technologies of commercial dampers. The precision of the results presented errors less than 5%.
