The inverse iteration method is one of the most effective methods of eigenvalue analysis and is suited for both vibration and structural analyses. It can compute eigenvalues in the order of increasing absolute value, the convergence of iterative computation can be accelerated by applying the technique of origin shift. However, the inverse iteration method must be able to solve a large-sized simultaneous linear algebraic equation in every iterative process. In order to improve the computation accuracy and the computation speed of the inverse iteration method, we introduce the concept of the transfer influence coefficient method into the iterative process. The transfer influence coefficient method is advantageous in that it can solve simultaneous linear algebraic equations, and the memory size required in the computation is extremely decreased. The present method is applied to both the undamped and the damped systems.
