Complex mechanical (e.g., multibody) systems with different types of constraints are generally performed through analytical dynamics methods. In some cases, however, it is possible that the (augmented) mass and/or stiffness matrices may derive to be singular; consequently, modal analysis, which is used extensively in the classical dynamics literature, fails. In this paper, if the uniqueness condition is satisfied by the constraints, a properly modified modal analysis is elucidated into analytical dynamics leading to the evaluation of the natural frequencies in a simple and straightforward way. Under that framework, advances of both classical and analytical dynamics are taken into consideration for evaluating the structural response.
