A Distributed Active Vibration Absorber (DAVA) for Active-Passive Vibration and Sound Radiation Control
(Virginia Tech, 1998-12-14)
This thesis presents a new active-passive treatment developed to reduce structural vibrations and their associated radiated sound. It is a contribution to the research of efficient and low cost devices that implement the ...
Experimentally-Based Analytical Prediction of Structural Vibration
(Virginia Tech, 1997-12-01)
This study evaluates the vibration isolation effect of various mounting systems in a heavy freight locomotive cab, and provides an analytical method for the prediction of structural vibration. The cab is set up in a ...
Modeling of multiple layered piezoelectric actuators in active structural control
(Virginia Tech, 1993)
The role of system dynamics on the behavior of elastomeric friction
(Virginia Tech, 1992-05-15)
System identification of adaptive composites
(Virginia Tech, 1990)
A planar comparison of actuators for vibration control of flexible structures
(Virginia Tech, 1988-05-12)
Vibration localization and statistical energy analysis in coupled systems
(Virginia Tech, 1990-05-15)
<p>,An investigation of the effect of the coupling value and the structural perturbation parameter is conducted on coupled systems. The analysis of a coupled pendulums system results in the analytical expression of the ...
Experimental determination of the impulse response function for elastic vibrating systems
(Virginia Tech, 1990-05-06)
<p>An experimental method for determination and analysis of the impulse response function of linear, elastic, vibrating systems is developed. A deconvolution method is developed for estimation of the impulse response ...
