This paper deals with the control and synchronization of chaotic systems. First, a control strategy is developed to control a class of uncertain nonlinear systems. The proposed strategy is an input-output control scheme, which comprises an uncertainty estimator and an exponential linearizing...
The suspension of a vehicle is the support system between a vehicle body and wheels. The purpose of a suspension system is to support the vehicle body and increase ride comfort. Care must be taken in the design of a suspension system because if the attenuation force becomes large, the passenger...
Traditionally, a container crane is modeled as a simple pendulum with either a flexible or a rigid hoisting cable, and a lumped mass at the end of the cable. However, in the case of quay-side container cranes, the actual configuration of the hoisting mechanism is significantly different; it...
A flexible structure with bonded piezoelectric sensors and actuators is considered as a smart structure. In this paper we introduce a new control criterion based on the absorption of the traveling waves of the sensing area. Unlike conventional wave controllers (local wave controllers), this...
This paper is concerned with the question of control of the rotation angle of a projectile’s fin using a piezoelectric beam actuator. The smart fin system considered in this paper consists of a hollow rigid fin (or canard) and a flexible beam actuator. A finite element model of the fin-beam...
NiTi-wire shape memory alloy (SMA) dampers, which utilize NiTi SMA wires to simultaneously damp tension, compression, and torsion, have been developed for structural control implementation in this study. First, three reduced-scale NiTi-wire SMA dampers were constructed. Then, mechanics analysis...
