Modeling and boundary control of translational and rotational motions of nonlinear slender beams in three-dimensional space
MetadataShow full item record
Equations of motion of extensible and shearable slender beams with large translational and rotational motions under external loads in three-dimensional space are first derived in a vector form. Boundary feedback controllers are then designed to ensure that the beams are practically K8-exponentially stable at the equilibrium. The control design, well-posedness, and stability analysis are based on two Lyapunov-type theorems developed for a class of evolution systems in Hilbert space. Numerical simulations on a slender beam immersed in sea water are included to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed control design.

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 ...
