Recent developments in the field of modal-based damage detection and vibration-based monitoring have led to a renewed interest in automated procedures for the operational modal analysis (OMA). The development of automated operational modal analysis (OMA) procedures marked a fundamental step towards the elimination of any user intervention since traditional modal identification requires a lot of interaction by an expert user. A key for effective automation of OMA is depended on well- defined modal indicators for a clear indication about which modes are to be selected as the physical modes. In all modal analysis, the construction of stabilization diagrams is necessary in order to illustrate, and decide, if a mode is physical or not for predefined range of the model order. On the other hand, the use of stabilization diagram tools involves a large amount of user interaction, costly, time-consuming process and certainly unsuited for online applications. Therefore, the development of automatic procedures for the analysis of stabilization diagrams by resembling decision-making process of a human has been carried out in recent years. For the sake of clearness, the automation of the interpretation of stabilization diagrams can generally be divided into two steps in order to speed up the process: a) elimination of noise modes and b) clustering of physical modes in order to obtain the most representative values of the estimated parameters of each clustered mode. In recent years, several alternative procedures have been proposed for clustering techniques. Therefore, this review aims to provide relevant essential information on the recent developments of cluster analysis in automated OMA. A literature review of existing clustering algorithm has been carried out to find best practice criteria for automated modal parameter identification which involving the general concepts of these techniques as well as the pro and cons of applying these clustering techniques are also discussed and summarised.
