About this book

This book develops and details rigorous design methodologies and performance measures for the control of modern Smart Structures. The spatially distributed/continuum or distributed parameter nature of such structures makes it difficult to apply modern lumped parameter control philosophy and techniques to such designs. While there exist a substantial amount of technical literature on the Control of Distributed Parameter Systems (DPS), there are still relatively few applications or practical implementations of the theory. The work presented in this textbook address the issue of the design and implementation of distributed parameter control schemes, for Smart Structures, which exploit both spatially distributed sensing and actuation through the use of modern smart material technology. The merging of DPS with distributed parameter transducers leads to simple, physically realizable control system designs. This text provides a significant reference for practicing professionals, students and researchers in the area of transducer design using smart materials for high performance smart structures.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book puts forward the author’s … unique experience, views, and contributions to the development of spatial filtering concepts and designs for the control of distributed flexible structures. … The book is written in a clear and concise fashion … and is a ‘must-have’ book for anyone seeking to expand their knowledge on the origins, developments, and state-of-the-art on transducer design and spatial filtering concepts for the control of smart material systems and structures.” (César M. A. Vasques, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 16 (3), 2011)
