This work is the study of tracking control of rigid body in a general way using a geometric approach. To achieve globally valid characteristics, it is necessary to study such a control problem in its own natural nonlinear space using differential geometric properties of the space. By linking the tracking control problem to the problem of stabilization of a single equilibrium of an error dynamics, a tracking controller in the general case of a compact Lie groups has been developed. Then, using Lassale invariance theorem convergence to one of the equilibrium points of error dynamics has been established. Behavior of the system around its equilibrium points is studied by linearizing the system, which proved the almost-global attractiveness of the desired equilibrium. The general control problem studied, in its special case of space of rotation matrices is applied to attitude control of a Quadrotor UAV. Performance of the controller is demonstrated through numerical simulations.

Nonlinear analysis of R/C low-rise shear walls
Mansour, Mohamad Y.; Dicleli, Murat; Lee, Jung Yoon (SAGE Publications, 2004-08-01)
An analysis method for predicting the response of low-rise shear walls under both monotonic and cyclic loading is presented in this paper. The proposed analysis method is based on the softened truss model theory but utilizes newly proposed cyclic constitutive relationships for concrete and steel bars obtained from cyclic shear testing. The successfulness of the analysis method, when combined with new materials constitutive relationships, is checked against the test results of 33 low-rise shear walls reporte...
Nonlinear Structural Coupling: Experimental Application
Kalaycioglu, Taner; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (2014-02-06)
In this work, the nonlinear structural modification/coupling technique proposed recently by the authors is applied to a test system in order to study the applicability of the method to real structures. The technique is based on calculating the frequency response functions of a modified system from those of the original system and the dynamic stiffness matrix of the nonlinear modifying part. The modification can also be in the form of coupling a nonlinear system to the original system. The test system used i...
Lateral load analysis of shear wall-frame structures
Akış, Tolga; Tokdemir, Turgut; Department of Engineering Sciences (2004)
The purpose of this study is to model and analyze the nonplanar shear wall assemblies of shear wall-frame structures. Two three dimensional models, for open and closed section shear wall assemblies, are developed. These models are based on conventional wide column analogy, in which a planar shear wall is replaced by an idealized frame structure consisting of a column and rigid beams located at floor levels. The rigid diaphragm floor assumption, which is widely used in the analysis of multistorey building st...
Lifetime Performance Analysis of Existing Reinforced Concrete Bridges. I: Theory
Akgül, Ferhat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2005-06-01)
In this first part of a two-part paper, a general methodology for lifetime performance analysis of existing reinforced concrete bridges is presented. The framework for the methodology is established by identifying four distinct categories: limit state equations, random variables, deterministic parameters, and constant coefficients. The limit state equations are derived by strictly adhering to the load and capacity formulas and requirements set forth in AASHTO specifications. Generality is pursued by establi...
