ABSTRACT
The Algorithm of Mode Isolation (AMI) is an iterative procedure for identifying the
number of modes contributing to a frequency response function (FRF) concurrently with
identifying the complex eigenvalues and eigenvectors of those modes. The latest modifica-
tions obtain these modal properties solely by using linear least squares fits of the FRF data
to canonical forms. The algorithmic operations are explained in a detailed sequence of steps
that are illustrated by some sample data. The computational efficiency of AMI relative
to other modal identification algorithms that fit response data to multi-degree-of-freedom
model equations is discussed.
