This book attempts to provide a reasonably detailed coverage of the
t.echnology ofmodal testing. This is nota new subject although many ofthe
most powerful techniques have only recently been developed and the
potential ofthe method only recently recognised. Modal testing is, in effect,
the process of constructing a mathematical model to describe the vibration
properties of a structure based on test data, rather than a conventional
theoretical analysis. As such, it has applications throughout the entire field
of engineering.

The subject matter in the book is presented in a particular order, and
that for a particular reason. ln order to take the maximum advantage of
the methods of modal t.esting, it is essential that an appropriate level of
expertise be reached not only in measurement and (data) analysis
methods, but also in the theoretical basis upon which the technique is
founded. To this end, the readeris encouraged to make a detailed study or
review of the theory in Chapter 2 before proceeding to the more practical
aspects of the measurement process in Chapter 3. Even here, however, a
rclatively high level of theoretical competence is expected in order to
understand properly the implications and limitations of the difTerent types
of measurement method - sine, random and transient excitations and the
like.

In Chapt.er 4 , the modal analysis methods used to process the measured
data are described, ranging from the basic and relatively simple to the
more advanced, computer-dependent. The analysis phase continues into
Chapte r 5 where thc overall modelling process is outlined, treating
difTerent leveis of complexity of the model which are appropriate to the
d1fTcrent applications. Then, in Chapter 6, examples are given of some of
1 hc many uses to which the product of a modal test may be put, a list

vii

which will undoubtedly grow in the next few ycars.
The opening chapter is rather more general, and serves both us on

introduction to the tcxt and also as an Overview of the subject. As such, it
provides an introduction to the rest of the work for the serious student but
also presents a condensation of the whole subject for readers who wish to
be apprised of the general activities and capabilities of a modal testing
facility but who lack the opportunity of the extensive 'hands-on' experience
which is essential for mastery of the subject. (ln the short course upon
which the book is based, the Overview is intended not only for those who
will attend the whole course but also for their managers who can only
spare a few hours!)
