  • most methods presented in this book are based on a popular MATLAB program called SOCIT.
  • builds a bridge between the disciplines of system identification as applied to controls and to modal testing — combines the solid theoretical and methodological foundations from the control field with the extensive experimental knowledge from the modal testing field.
  • uses a “result-example” style — using physical and intuitive arguments wherever possible.
  • presents real systems, such as the Hubble Spacecraft Telescope and an active aircraft wing, to illustrate some of the system identification techniques used in practice.

System identification is the process of developing or improving a mathematical representation of a physical system using experimental data. Over the past decade, several system identification techniques have been developed within different disciplines. This text/reference brings together the significant advances over the past decade into a single unified source — with common mathematical notation that will enable readers from a variety of engineering areas — e.g., aerospace, electrical, civil, and mechanical engineering —to apply system identification to engineering systems.
Focuses on the three types of identification in engineering structures — modal parameter identification; structural-model parameter identification; and control-model identification. MARKET: For researchers and engineers, students, and teachers in vibrations, controls and system identification.
