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 ...
The role of system dynamics on the behavior of elastomeric friction
(Virginia Tech, 1992-05-15)
System identification of adaptive composites
(Virginia Tech, 1990)
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 ...
Modeling of multiple layered piezoelectric actuators in active structural control
(Virginia Tech, 1993)
The design and analysis of finite length, multiple layered, induced strain actuators is investigated. A model of an arbitrary multiple layered actuator is utilized to predict the applied force and moment from the i<sup>th</sup> ...
