Abstract

A study of optimal feedback control of the dynamic response of cantilevers exposed to blast loadings is presented. The structure to be controlled consists of a thin-walled beam of closed cross section contour that encompasses a number of nonclassical features such as transverse shear, primary and secondary warping, and anisotropy of the constitutent material. The control is achieved via the use of actuating and sensing capabilities provided by piezoelectric devices that are bonded or embedded into the host structure. In addition, the directionality property of advanced fiber-reinforced composite materials is also used to tailor the host structure to obtain an enhanced dynamic response. The cases of piezoactuators spread over the entire span of the structure or in the form of a patch are considered, and issues related with the influence of patch location and size on the control efficiency are discussed. Other issues related to the minimization of the required input power and implications of the limitation of control input voltage and of those generated by the inclusion/discard in the quadratic performance index of time-dependent external excitations are also addressed.
