Overview

Distributed parameter systems encompass a broad range of engineering applications from stereo speakers to space structures. The dynamic behavior of these systems is usually governed by one or more partial differential equations, which may accurately represent the physical system but are often difficult to solve exactly. Research in the dynamics and control of distributed parameter structural systems has grown dramatically in recent years, owing in part to the increasing complexity of these systems. Emerging technologies such as smart materials and mechatronics have contributed to growth in interest. The purpose of this book is to document recent progress in both theory and practical applications. Chapters discuss new simulation, modeling, and analysis techniques used to investigate a variety of elastic, electromechanical, and acoustic systems. With contributions by leading authorities, this book will serve as an up-to-date resource for researchers and graduate students and also as a useful reference for practicing engineers working in the area of dynamics and control of distributed systems.
