Narrowband Control Design for Smart Structural Systems

  title={Narrowband Control Design for Smart Structural Systems},
  author={Daniel J. Kolepp and Ralph C. Smith}
This investigation focuses on the development of narrowband control strategies which are e ective for structural systems subjected to both harmonic exogenous forces and stochastic uncertainties in the model or measurements. A cantilever beam with surface-mounted piezoceramic actuators is used as a prototypical structure since it exhibits physical attributes of a variety of vibrating structures but is suÆciently simple to facilitate initial control design. A PDE model for the structure is… CONTINUE READING
