Acerca de


I was introduced to structural control by Raphael Haftka and Bill Hallauer during a one year stay at the Aerospace and Ocean Engineering department of Virginia Tech., during the academic year 1985-1986. At that time, there was a tremendous interest in large space structures in the USA, mainly because of the Strategic Defense Initiative and the space station program. Most of the work was theoretical or numerical, but Bill Hallauer was one of the few experimen­ talists trying to implement control systems which worked on actual structures. When I returned to Belgium, I was appointed at the chair of Mechanical Engi­ neering and Robotics at ULB, and I decided to start some basic vibration control experiments on my own. A little later, smart materials became widely available and offered completely new possibilities, particularly for precision structures, but also brought new difficulties due to the strong coupling in their constitutive equations, which requires a complete reformulation of the classical modelling techniques such as finite elements. We started in this new field with the sup­ port of the national and regional governments, the European Space Agency, and some bilateral collaborations with European aerospace companies. Our Active Structures Laboratory was inaugurated in October 1995.

From the Back Cover:

This text is an introduction to the dynamics of active structures and to the feedback control of lightly damped flexible structures; the emphasis is placed on basic issues and simple control strategies that work.

Now in its third edition, more chapters have been added, and comments and feedback from readers have been taken into account, while at the same time the unique premise of bridging the gap between structure and control has remained.  Many examples and problems bring the subject to life and take the audience from theory to practice.

The book has chapters dealing with some concepts in structural dynamics; electromagnetic and piezoelectric transducers; piezoelectric beam, plate and truss; passive damping with piezoelectric transducers; collocated versus non-collocated control; active damping with collocated systems; vibration isolation; state space approach; analysis and synthesis in the frequency domain; optimal control; controllability and observability; stability; applications; tendon control of cable structures; active control of large telescopes; and semi-active control. The book concludes with an exhaustive bibliography and index.


This book is intended for structural engineers who want to acquire some background in vibration control; it can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on vibration control or active structures.

A solutions manual is available through the publisher to teachers using this book as a textbook.
