Abstract
For application in on-line control of elastic vibrations, a control feedback is proposed based on distributed measurement of deflection-curvature. This is achieved using modal curvature gauges, one for each dominant vibration mode: each gauge is sensitive to a designated vibration mode while insensitive to other modes of interest. Only distributed measurements can provide such decoupled modal information and, thus, simplify the vibration control. The number of gauges required equals the number of dominant vibration modes of interest. The proposed `modal curvature gauge' is a generalization of the novel `curvature gauge' reported recently. Unlike the established technology of modal strain sensing, this sensor that combines fiber-optics and laser sources, is particularly suitable for thinner structures. For any strain and any curvature sensor, there exists a breakeven structural thickness separating the application domains of the two, such that curvatures should be measured in structures thinner than this breakeven thickness. It is the thinner structures that are most prone to elastic vibrations in mechanical systems. They also have more distinctly dominant vibration modes.
