Paper Abstract

Modal domain optical fiber sensors, or distributed effect sensors, for active vibration suppression in flexible structures are considered. Preliminary modeling results indicate that these sensors can be used to sense vibrations in a flexible beam and the signal can be used to damp vibrations in the beam. Weighted distributed-effect sensors can be used to implement high order compensators with low order functional observers.
