Actuator placement in prestressed adaptive trusses for vibration controlThis paper describes the optimal location selection of actuators for vibration control in prestressed adaptive trusses. Since prestressed adaptive trusses are statically indeterminate, the actuators to be used for vibration control purposes must work against (1) existing static axial prestressing forces, (2) static axial forces caused by the actuation, and (3) dynamic axial forces caused by the motion of the mass. In statically determinate adaptive trusses (1) and (2) are non - existing. The actuator placement problem in statically indeterminate trusses is therefore governed by the actuation energy and the actuator strength requirements. Assuming output feedback type control of selected vibration modes in autonomous systems, a procedure is given for the placement of vibration controlling actuators in prestressed adaptive trusses.
