Stabilization of Euler- Bernoulli Beam by A Boundary Control

  • Alexander V. Gnedin


A flexible beam is considered. One end of the beam is free and another end is clamped under changeable angle, with angular velocity taken as control variable. A suitable stability criterion is introduced and the uniform exponential stabilizability is established for a linear feedback control applied at the clamped end.
