- The following analytical and experimental studies were conducted: (1) A simple algorithm was developed to suppress the structural vibrations of 3-dimensional distributed parameter systems, subjected to interface motion and/or directly applied forces. The algorithm is designed to cope with structural oscillations superposed on top of rigid-body motion: a situation identical to that encountered by the SCOLE components. A significant feature of the method is that only local measurements of the structural displacements and velocities relative to the moving frame of reference are needed. (2) A numerical simulation study was conducted on a simple linear finite element model of a cantilevered plate which was subjected to test excitations consisting of impulsive base motion and of nonstationary wide-band random excitation applied at its root. In each situation, the aim was to suppress the vibrations of the plate relative to the moving base. (3) A small mechanical model resembling an aircraft wing was designed and fabricated to investigate the control algorithm under realistic laboratory conditions.
