Abstract:

The Meeting dealt with the philosophy and approach on the use of active controls to realize structural improvements. The question of what constitutes a good balance of effort to achieve a successful active control system was posed. Specifics dealt with the techniques for evaluating the system transfer function, with the relative roles of ground vibration testing, bench testing of component parts and the merits of open and closed loop testing. The question of what is an appropriate index of performance is of central significance.
