Abstract:

This survey covers literature published primarily during 1985-1989 that is relevant to experimental study of the dynamics and control of large spacecraft structures LSS. Most of the references cited report research in the United States, but a few report research conducted abroad. All of the literature surveyed should be readily available in U.S. research libraries, or from standard sources such as the National Technical Information Service, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. The references cited consist primarily of articles published in archival journals, papers presented at major conferences and printed in the proceedings, formal reports issued by research laboratories, and books. The principal subjects surveyed are experimental studies, facilities, and methods relevant to LSS in the areas of structural dynamics, passive control, and active control, with an emphasis on the last area. Most of the references cited discuss specific experimental studies and present experimental data. The others either describe existing or planned experimental facilities and programs or discuss experimental methods that are already well established or that hold promise for future application to LSS.
