The endeavour to use the changes of dynamic characteristics for the determination of damage or other imperfections of structures is not new. The rudimentary application of structural evaluation and damage assessment by vibration monitoring has been practised since ancient times. Experimental work in the field of modal analysis of real structures from the 70s and 80s of last century (offshore oil drilling platform (Kenley& Dodds, 1980)). Modal analysis was used also in the laboratory tests of plastics (Adams at al.,1975). Identification of damages of R.C. bridges by means of frequency spectra of response are known from the 90s (Flesh at al., 1990; Pirner, 1989).
