2006
Kırcalı, Ömer Faruk
This study presented the design and implementation of a spatial Hinf controller to suppress the free and forced vibrations of a cantilevered smart beam. The smart beam consists of a passive aluminum beam with surface bonded PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches. In this study, the PZT patches were used as the actuators and a laser displacement sensor was used as the sensor. In the first part of the study, the modeling of the smart beam by the assumed-modes method was conducted. The model correction technique was applied to include the effect of out-of-range modes on the dynamics of the system. Later, spatial system identification work was performed in order to clarify the spatial characteristics of the smart beam. In the second part of the study, a spatial Hinf controller was designed for suppressing the first two flexural vibrations of the smart beam. The efficiency of the controller was verified both by simulations and experimental implementation. As a final step, the comparison of the spatial and pointwise Hinf controllers was employed. A pointwise Hinf controller was designed and experimentally implemented. The efficiency of the both controllers was compared by simulations.

Onat, Cem; Şahin, Melin; Yaman, Yavuz (2011-06-22)
In this study, a fractional order controller was designed and experimentally applied for the active vibration suppression of a smart beam. The smart beam was a cantilever aluminium beam equipped with eight symmetrically located surface-bonded PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches which were used both as sensor and actuator. For this particular application, a group of PZT patches closed to the root of the beam was used as actuators in the bimorph configuration and a single patch was nominated as a sensor. Fr...
Investigation of the effect of semi-geodesic winding on the vibration characteristics of filament wound shells of revolution
İbrahimoğlu, Can Serkan; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, the effect of semi-geodesic winding on the free vibration characteristics of filament wound composite shells of revolution with variable radii of curvature is studied. The analysis is performed by a semi-analytical solution method which is based on the numerical integration of the finite exponential Fourier transform of the fundamental shell of revolution equations. The governing equations for the free vibration analysis are initially obtained in terms of fundamental shell variables, and the...

This study presents the design and implementation of a spatial H∞ controller for the active vibration control of a cantilevered smart beam. The smart beam consists of a passive aluminum beam (507x51x2mm) and eight symmetrically surface bonded SensorTech BM500 type PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches (25x20x0.5mm). PZT patches are used as actuators and a laser displacement sensor is used as sensor. The smart beam was analytically modelled by using the assumed-modes method. The model only included the first...
