Abstract:

This report summarizes 16 months of research into active control of elastic wave propagation in flexible structures. The report format is that of a brief executive summary supported by an extensive appendix containing the research publications generated in the course of this research. The research performed can be broken into two major fields 1 Broadband damping by impedance matching the control system to the underlying wave or dereverberated impedance of a flexible structure 2 Sensor development for purposes of wave observation and control.
