Boundary control of transverse motion of marine risers with actuator dynamics
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a boundary controller to reduce transverse motion of flexible marine risers driven by a hydraulic system at the top end of the risers under environmental disturbances induced by waves, wind, and ocean currents. The boundary controller is designed based on Lyapunov's direct method and the backstepping technique. Proof of existence and uniqueness of the solutions of the closed-loop control system is carried out by using the Galerkin approximation method. Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed boundary controller. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Chen, T.; Xu, C.; Lin, Qun; Loxton, Ryan; Teo, Kok Lay (2015)This paper considers an optimal boundary control problem for fluid pipelines with terminal valve control. The goal is to minimize pressure fluctuation during valve closure, thus mitigating water hammer effects. We model ...
Chen, T.; Ren, Z.; Xu, C.; Loxton, Ryan (2015)When fluid flow in a pipeline is suddenly halted, a pressure surge or wave is created within the pipeline. This phenomenon, called water hammer, can cause major damage to pipelines, including pipeline ruptures. In this ...
The “minimal boundary curve for endothermy” as a predictor of heterothermy in mammals and birds: a reviewCooper, Christine; Geiser, F. (2008)According to the concept of the “minimal boundary curve for endothermy”, mammals and birds with a basal metabolic rate (BMR) that falls below the curve are obligate heterotherms and must enter torpor. We examined the ...
