Knowledge of the elastic properties of prints during printing processes is essential in printing presses. A computational inverse technique is presented to determine the elastic properties of materials. An effective technique for identification of elastic properties of prints consisting of the paper and several layers of ink and varnish is based on experimental data of modal vibration testing and finite element modelling. The aim of finite element modelling and optimization is to guess the material properties obtaining the same vibration frequencies and modes while test specimen is loaded in the same way as on printing press. Proposed technique can be used for the printing process modelling as non-destructive method during the initial design stage.
