Paper Abstract

Adaptive structures optimal design problems and solution methods are presented and discussed for the cases of shape control and active damping. A general method to solve simultaneously optimal placement and control problems for active damping applications is outlined. This method is based on a finite element structural model and on the calculation of the closed-loop system poles. Numerical results are given to illustrate this method for the case of a beam with collocated PZT sensor/actuator pair and a direct velocity feedback controller.
