A double modal synthesis method in which compatibility conditions at substructure interfaces are ensured by the introduction of loaded modes is presented in this study. These loaded modes, which are obtained by introducing mass loading or stiffness loading along the boundaries, are used to define generalized boundary coordinates. Thus the hybrid models presented in the first part of this study are developed so that they can be derived from test data as results of independent modal identifications. Unlike in classical modal synthesis methods, in this double modal synthesis method, it is not necessary to clamp the interfaces, which is always difficult to carry out during vibration tests. By introducing loaded modes, generalized boundary coordinates which represent boundary deformability in the frequency range under study can be defined.
