A complete solution for problems of vibration control in structures that may be subject to a broadband primary vibration field, this book addresses the following steps: experimental identification of the dynamic model of the structure; optimal placement of sensors and actuators; formulation of control constraints in terms of controller frequency response shape; controller design and simulation; and controller implementation and rapid prototyping.
The identification procedure is a gray-box approach tailored to the estimation of modal parameters of large-scale flexible structures. The actuator/sensor placement algorithm maximizes a modal controllability index improving the effectiveness of the control. Considering limitations of sensors and actuators, the controller is chosen as a stable, band-pass MIMO system resulting from the closed-form solution of a robust control problem. Experimental results on an aeronautical stiffened skin panel are presented using rapid-prototyping hardware.

From the reviews:
"Intended for graduate students and practicing engineers, this book treats vibration control for structural systems. It addresses identification of the dynamic model of the structure, placement of sensors and actuators, formulation of control constraints, controller design and simulation, and controller implementation and rapid prototyping. The material is based on the authors' work on two projects financed by the European Community in the 5th and 6th Framework programs." (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, February, 2012)
