The correlation between analytical structural model and experimental test results has become the subject of considerable recent research efforts. This area is known as System Identification. The engineer has applied the tools of mathematical programming, statistics, and structural mechanics to seek solutions to this problem. This paper summarizes past work in system identification in the structural dynamics area.
