Active Vibration Control of a Smart Beam by Using a Spatial Approach

Abstract

The vibration control is an important and rapidly developing field for lightweight flexible aerospace structures. Those structures may be damaged or become ineffective under the undesired vibrational loads they constantly experience. Hence, they require effective control mechanism to attenuate the vibration levels in order to preserve the structural integrity. The usage of smart materials, as actuators and/or sensors, has become promising research and application area that gives the opportunity to accomplish the reduction of vibration of flexible structures and proves to be an effective active control mechanism.
