    • Active control of coupled wave propagation in fluid-filled elastic cylindrical shells 

      Brevart, Bertrand J.; Fuller, Chris R. (Acoustical Society of America, 1993-09-01)
      A control approach to reduce the total power propagating along fluid-filled elastic cylinders is analytically investigated. The motion of the cylinder is described by the Kennard shell equations fully coupled to the interior ...
    • Active isolation of vibration with adaptive structures 

      Guigou, Catherine; Fuller, Chris R.; Wagstaff, Peter R. (Acoustical Society of America, 1994-07-01)
      The problem of actively isolating the periodic vibrations of a rigid machine mounted on a supporting flexible structure is usually approached by applying the active inputs in parallel or series with the passive inputs. ...
    • A biologically inspired control approach for distributed elastic systems 

      Fuller, Chris R.; Carneal, James P. (Acoustical Society of America, 1993-06-01)
      A multi-degree of freedom control approach, which is largely inspired by biological systems, is presented. Control inputs to a structure are achieved by multiple piezoelectric actuators. One actuator chosen as the ''master'' ...
    • A biologically inspired controller 

      Carneal, James P.; Fuller, Chris R. (Acoustical Society of America, 1995-07-01)
      A biologically inspired control approach for reducing vibrations in distributed elastic systems has been derived and experimentally verified for narrow-band excitation. The control paradigm approximates natural biological ...
    • An experimental study of the active control of multiple-wave types in an elastic beam 

      Clark, Richard L.; Pan, Jie; Hansen, Colin H. (Acoustical Society of America, 1992-08-01)
      In many practical situations, different types of waves may coexist within a structure. If control is limited to a single wave type, other kinds of waves may be generated unintentionally by the action of the control forces. ...
