Not too long ago, there was a thread in the General Physics section (I think) where someone was asking about how large buildings are evaluated from a modal analysis perspective. It was my experience that large structures had a completely analytical approach with some scale modeling.
This month has shown me that I was not very well informed on the topic. In this month's Sound & Vibration, there is a great article on this very topic. They even show pictures of large modal experiments on structures like a dam and a bridge.
It's well worth the read for anyone who has an interest in this field of study.
Here's the link:
