Frequency domain modal parameter identification methods have several attractive properties as compared with the time domain methods except for the limitation of low-order-and-narrow-band per analysis. As rule of thumb, a limit of less than ten modes has been observed for several popular frequency domain algorithms. However, this paper will show, that with a proper and thorough use of the orthogonal polynomials in the frequency domain, the number of modes per analysis can be increased to as high as 75 in a comparatively wide frequency range of interest while still retaining numerical stability. Both numerical example (75 modes in 5–1000 Hz) and experimental data analysis (56 modes in 50–5000 Hz) are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of this innovative approach.
