A static deflection control of clamped composite plate by applying various voltages on the actuators is undertaken, and the active control analysis using LQR and PID controllers for attenuating free and forced vibrations has been studied and compared as well.
If there are enough training cases, the model can achieve the accurate wing static deflection and aerodynamic force coefficients rapidly.
The mass of under-chassis device is m, hanging stiffness is [k.sub.z], and the hanging frequency [f.sub.z] and static deflection [[delta]] can be obtained, respectively [15], as
where IM is dynamic impact factor, also known as the dynamic load allowance in the AASHTO [16] code with the IM = 0.33; [U.sub.S] is the maximum static deflection of girder; [U.sub.D] is the maximum dynamic deflection of girder with braking force; [DELTA][U.sub.D] is the difference of [U.sub.D] between from FEM result and experiment result; [DELTA](1 + IM) is the difference of (1 + IM) between from FEM result and experiment result.
"In general, with vibrations down from the roof, you can install a 2-inch static deflection spring isolation system, and you will probably need seismic controls in place to stay within seismic codes," says Spencer.
An experimental leaf springs model was verified by using a leaf springs test rig that could measure vertical static deflection of leaf springs under static loading condition.
However, the effect of a global reduction in bending stiffness for a single, simple-supported, symmetrically loaded beam is easy to conceptualize, particularly in terms of the mid-span static deflection. From basic principles, it can be shown that the mid-span static deflection of such a beam will increase proportionately relative to a global reduction in the bending stiffness.
Kuo and Lee [20] derived the static deflection of a general elastically end-restrained, nonuniform beam on a nonlinear elastic foundation under axial and transverse forces.
The method utilizes virtual static deflection estimated by the modal flexibility matrix which, in turn, is formed by using the modal parameters, such as natural frequencies and mode shapes.
The stiffness of the metal structure of the crane was established with reference to the value of static deflection on lifting the maximum cargo.
