The series, Modal Space – Back to Basics, features a variety of topics relating to modal analysis and its use for both analytical and experimental work. Some of the material presented here is excerpted from the multimedia format Modal Handbook on CD. Reader's questions regarding some common problems or misconceptions relating to modal analysis are welcome. These questions should be forwarded to Experimental Techniques, SEM, firstname.lastname@example.org.
