The location template matching (LTM) method is a technique of identifying an impact location on a structure, and is often applied to structural health monitoring and large scale human-computer interface (HCI) systems. The LTM method utilizes a certain measure of similarity between two time signals. The correlation coefficient is most widely used for this purpose, and the group delay based method is recently proposed to improve the accuracy of finding the best matching pair of signals. In practice, one of key essential consideration for implementing the LTM method is to guarantee that a sufficient number of vibration modes must be contained in the measured signal, and yet the lower sampling rate is needed for a real-time implementation. In this paper, the properties of correlation coefficient and group delay with respect to the number of vibration modes are investigated. A few important results are obtained through extensive computer simulations and experiments. If the number of vibration modes contained in the measured signal is more than four it is sufficient for the correlation based LTM method, while the group delay based LTM method requires smaller number of vibration modes.
