This paper describes an extension of the force appropriation approach which permits the identification of the modal mass, damping and stiffness matrices of nonproportionally damped systems using multiple exciters. Appropriated excitation bursts are applied to the system at each natural frequency, followed by a regression analysis in modal space. The approach is illustrated on a simulated model of a plate with discrete dampers positioned to introduce significant damping nonproportionality. The influence of out-of-band flexible and rigid body modes, imperfect appropriation, measurement noise and impure mode shapes is considered. The method is shown to provide adequate estimates of the modal damping matrix.
