This chapter attempts to simplify experimental modal analysis for use in structural health monitoring through remote sensing of vibrations using the microwave interferometry technology. The commercially available Image By Interferometric Survey-Frequency for Structures (IBIS-FS) radar has been used in bridge and historical building monitoring with comparable results to accelerometers. In this chapter, a repeatable method for experimental modal analysis of a high-rise building with an irregular plan using the IBIS-FS is presented.
