Adaptive Structures: Dynamics and Control by Robert L. Clark, William R. Saunders, Gary P. Gibbs

Mechanical Engineering/Materials Science

An applications-oriented approach for engineers and advanced students

Adaptive Structures covers the key concepts and practical issues involved in translating much of the theory of adaptive structures into successful, real-world hardware. Easily applied to a variety of application physics, the material emphasizes the integration of control strategies, transduction device dynamics, and spatial signal processing through novel sensing methods and actuator configurations (physical or transformed coordinates).

The book contains essential models of adaptive structures and components to facilitate design approaches. The accompanying disk features script files, operating under MATLAB, which can be used to generate most of the results presented throughout the book and are invaluable to readers developing their own structural models.

Topics include:

• Fundamentals of structural dynamics; linear systems and signals; and signal processing and digital filters

• The integration of spatial and temporal signal processing techniques

• Transduction device dynamics and links between physical, modal, and wave domain models for structural dynamic analysis and control

• An overview of classical controls

• An application-oriented review of adaptive feedforward control and multivariable feedback control system architectures
