Low-frequency reverberant sound fields are usually suppressed by means of either adaptive feedforward control or Helmholtz resonator. Feedforward systems utilize a noise reference signal, error microphone, and loudspeaker to cancel sound propagating in one direction. Due to the requirement for multiple transducers and a powerful digital signal processor,(More)
Multiple-modes of structural vibration can be suppressed through the connection of an electrical impedance to the terminals of a bonded piezoelectric transducer. The so-called resonant shunts, one commonly used class of shunt impedances, provide good nominal damping performance but they are highly sensitive to variations in transducer capacitance and(More)
This paper presents a new type of passive vibration control: adaptive electromagnetic shunt damping. We propose a single-mode resonant shunt controller that adapts to environmental conditions using two different adaptation strategies. The first technique is based on minimizing the root mean square (RMS) vibration, while the second minimizes the phase(More)
Broadband structural vibration can be suppressed through the connection of an electrical impedance to the terminals of a bonded piezoelectric transducer. This is referred to as piezoelectric shunt damping. Good nominal damping performance has been obtained with resonant shunts, but these shunts are highly sensitive to variations in structural resonance(More)
