## Abstrakt

The inverse problem of calculating the flexural velocity of a radiating structure of a general

shape from measurements in the field is often solved by combining a Boundary Element

Method with the Singular Value Decomposition and a regularization technique. In their standard

form these methods solve for the unknown normal velocities of the structure at the relatively

large number of nodes in the numerical model. Efficiently the regularization technique smoothes

the solution spatially, since a fast spatial variation is associated with high index singular values,

which is filtered out or damped in the regularization. Hence, the effective number of degrees of

freedom in the model is often much lower than the number of nodes in the model. The present

paper deals with an alternative formulation possible for the subset of radiation problems in

which a (structural) modal expansion is known for the structure. The inverse problem is

formulated in terms of modal amplitudes rather than of nodal velocities. The size of the inverse

problem and the built-in regularization can be controlled by choosing the number of modes

accounted for in the model.
