If the ModSelMethod =EFFM, the significance level of a mode is defined as the modal effective mass, divided by the total mass. Any mode whose significance level is less than this value is considered insignificant and is not expanded. The higher thesignificancethreshold, the fewer the number of modes expanded.The significance value defaults to 0.001 (which should work in most cases) , except for the case of DDAM mode selection method where it defaults to 0.01.
