Since in case considered the body of mass mi performs a plane motion hence the Newton’s equations may be used. Origin of each coordinate coincides with the centre of gravity of individual bodies when the whole system is at its equilibrium position. the resultant of all static forces is equal zero.is the external excitation matrix x. For this equilibrium position all the static forces acting on individual bodies produces the resultant force equal to zero.

The modal damping ratios ς 1 , ς 2 and ς 3 are unknown and are to be identified by fitting the analytical transfer functions into the experimental ones. Since the transducer 5 (Fig. 1) produces acceleration, the laboratory installation permits to obtain the acceleration to force transfer function.

Because ς n and Ξpn are constants, magnitudes of the absolute value of the transfer functions for ω = ω n represents the modes Ξ1n , Ξ2n , Ξ3n associated with the n − th natural frequency. An example of extracting the natural frequency and the corresponding natural mode from the transfer function is shown in Fig. 4
