Abstract
The report describes the implementation of a computer program for predicting the effects of structural modifications on the dynamic response of structures. The forward modification problem of predicting changes in modal characteristics due to specified structural modifications has been implemented in a computer program called STRUM. This program interfaces to the general purpose finite element program VAST. The method of calculation is described and test problem results are presented.
