Modelling and boundary control of slender curved beams
MetadataShow full item record
Modelling and boundary control of extensible and shearable slender curved beams in flow with large in-plane deflection are addressed in this paper. Equations of motion of the beams are derived based on the difference between purely geometric deformation and actual deformation from the reference and actual configurations to a virtual straight configuration. Two control designs based on the Lyapunov direct method are proposed for curved beams with both small and large curvature. The proposed boundary controllers guarantee globally (practically) (Formula presented.)-exponential stabilisation of the beam's motions at the origin. Two Lyapunov-type theorems are developed for nonlinear evolution systems in Hilbert space for analysis of well posedness and stability of the closed-loop system.

Investigation of performance of carbon and glass fibre strengthened concrete beams with different end anchoragesHiew, Kee Hon (2012)In this research, 12 reinforced concrete (RC) beams, comprising two beams as control beams, and 10 beams strengthened with fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP), were tested in a four-point bending configuration to determine the ...
Zhao, Mingming (2011)Idiophones generate sound through the vibration of their beam-like “keys”. The musical sound generated depends on the natural bending vibrations of the free-free beams. The tonal quality of the idiophone bar is achieved ...
A new, simple and precise method for measuring cyclotron proton beam energies using the activity vs. depth profile of zinc-65 in a thick target of stacked copper foilsAsad, A.; Chan, S.; Cryer, D.; Burrage, J.; Siddiqui, Salim; Price, R. (2015)© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. The proton beam energy of an isochronous 18MeV cyclotron was determined using a novel version of the stacked copper-foils technique. This simple method used stacked foils of natural copper forming ...
