Robust control applications for smart truss structure
A finite element modeling of an intelligent truss structure with piezoelectric stack actuators for the purpose of active damping and structural vibration attenuation is presented. This paper concerns with the following ...
Optimal design of smart structures using bonded piezoelectrics for vibration control
Smart material technology has become an area of increasing interest for the development of lighter and stronger structures which are able to incorporate actuator and sensor capabilities for collocated control. In the design ...
H-2 and H-infinity - norm control of intelligent structures using LMI techniques
(Katholieke Univ Leuven, Dept Werktuigkunde, 2002-01-01)
Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs) is a powerful too] that has been used in many areas ranging from control engineering to system identification and structural design. There are many factors that make LMI appealing. One is ...
Structural real time control using fluid magnetorheologic damper
In the last decades there was a great development in the study of control systems to attenuate the harmful effect of natural events in great structures, as buildings and bridges. Magnetorheological fluid (MR), that is an ...
