Modal synthesis methods have long been studied because the use of generalized coordinates makes it possible to reduce calculation costs. Our approach uses modes to describe each part of the assembly of several substructures. This method, called “Double Modal Synthesis,” is presented through primal and dual formulations. As modal truncation usually introduces a lack of precision, we will use an ω2 development if necessary. These formulations will first be explained using a continuous formulation. A finite element method will then be proposed. Another aim of the paper is to introduce formulations needed to understand the multimodal analysis methods that will be presented in a forthcoming paper.
