1 May 1996 Optimal actuator strategies for acoustic suppression
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we are concerned with Smart Materials that contain many actuators and sensors along with digital signal processing electronics that allow for the implementation of a control algorithm. Smart Materials have been proposed for the active control of sound from a vibrating structure. Here we investigate the design of structural control systems for these Smart Structures for noise suppression. First we model the radiated acoustic waves in terms of the velocity of the surface of the structure. Then we formulate an optimal control problem as a linear system that has a transmission zero in the path between the disturbance force and the shape that radiates best.
