Actuator and Sensor Placement

Part of the Mechanical Engineering Series book series (MES)


A typical actuator and sensor location problem for structural dynamics testing can be described as a structural test plan. The plan is based on the available information on the structure itself, on disturbances acting on the structure, and on the required structural performance. The preliminary information on structural properties is typically obtained from a structural finite-element model. The disturbance information includes disturbance location and disturbance spectral contents. The structure performance is commonly evaluated through the displacements or accelerations of selected structural locations. The actuator and sensor placement problem was investigated by many researchers, see, for example, [1], [7], [24], [47], [55], [86], [89], [90], [96], [97], [101], [103], [105], [106], [127], and a review article [131].
