This paper presents a strategy for the construction of parameterized linear macromodels from tabulated port responses. These macromodels are able to reproduce the input-output behavior of the structure of interest both in terms of frequency and one or more design variables such as geometry and material parameters. A highly efficient combination of rational identification and piecewise linear interpolation leads to a macromodel form which can be cast as a polytopic descriptor form. This in turns enables the construction of a numerically robust testing procedure, based on linear matrix inequalities, for the assessment of uniform model stability within any prescribed region of the parameters space. Several numerical examples are used to illustrate the theory on practical application cases.
