In this paper, we develop a structure-preserving formulation of the data-driven vector fitting algorithm for the case of modally damped mechanical systems. Using the structured pole-residue form of the transfer function of modally damped second-order systems, we propose two possible structured extensions of the barycentric formula of system transfer functions. Integrating these new forms within the classical vector fitting algorithm leads to the formulation of two new algorithms that allow the computation of modally damped mechanical systems from data in a least squares fashion. Thus, the learned model is guaranteed to have the desired structure. We test the proposed algorithms on two benchmark models.
