An Overview of Enhanced Modal Identification

Part of the CISM International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 469)


The application of identification techniques is spreading in many engineering fields, as a reliable and realistic understanding of structures is becoming a common issue. The aim of this paper is to summarize the main steps needed for a complete and up-to-date identification process, referring to the modal approach. The complex eigenvalue approach and a non-proportional damping model are discussed in detail.
