This paper proposes an inverse structural modification method for eigenstructure assignment (EA), which allows to assign the desired mode shapes only at the parts of interest of the system. The presence of unimposed eigenvector entries leads to a nonconvex problem. Therefore, to boost the convergence to a global optimal solution, a homotopy optimization strategy is implemented based on the convex approximation of the cost function. Such a relaxation is performed through some auxiliary variables and through the McCormick's relaxation of the occurring bilinear terms. The approach handles general assignment tasks, with an arbitrary number of modification parameters and prescribed eigenpairs.
