About the Authors
  • The control of vibrating systems is a significant issue in the design of aircraft, spacecraft, bridges, and high-rise buildings. This book discusses the control of vibrating systems, integrating structural dynamics, vibration analysis, modern control, and system identification. By integrating these subjects engineers will need only one book, rather than several texts or courses, to solve vibration control problems. The authors cover key developments in aerospace control and identification theory, including virtual passive control, observer and state-space identification, and data-based controller synthesis. They address many practical issues and applications, and show examples of how various methods are applied to real systems. Some methods show the close integration of system identification and control theory from the state-space perspective, rather than from the traditional input-output model perspective of adaptive control. This text will be useful for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineering, as well as for practicing engineers.

    • Provides more modern techniques for solving problems in control of vibrating systems
    • Authors have wide academic and industry experience, resulting in balanced coverage of theory and applications
    • Unique integration of the related topics of structural dynamics, vibration analysis, control and system identification in one text

    "This text will be useful for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineering, as well as for practising engineers." Engineering Designer

    "The book addresses many issues related to identification and control of structural systems, and serves as a good textbook in this field....The book's scope and coverage fills a void in the area it set out to do in a very readable and instructional way." International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control
