This paper presents an exact method for evaluating the receptances of nonproportionally damped dynamic systems. Based on a decomposition of the damping matrix, an iteration procedure is developed. This method does not require matrix inversion, and completely eliminates the error caused by undamped modal data. Compared to the existing exact solution methods, the proposed method can save more time in the computation. Also, the study yields a convenient way to determine the asymptotic stability of nonproportionally damped systems.
