Abstract:

This research was aimed at laying the groundwork for a long term project on the integrated, optimization-based design of large, flexible structures and their control systems. Research was carried out in four areas 1 modeling the dynamic behavior of simple flexible structures 2 development of a theory of nondifferentiable optimization algorithms for the solution of problems with max function type inequality constraints 3 exploraton of the use of optimization in optimization-based design of large, flexible structures and their control systems and 4 interactive software for optimization-based control system design.
