Paper Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present the preliminary experimental results on the influence of vibration confinement on the optimization of sensor and actuator placement in smart structures. Previous studies have indicated that vibration confinement may have significant effects on the optimal location of sensors and actuators. Three types of structures, beam, plate, and cylinder structures, are examined in this paper. Two criteria based on an observability/controllability measure and actuator power requirements are used to evaluate the sensor/actuator performance. Based on our experimental results, it is clear that confinement has a significant impact on the optimization of sensors and actuators.
