Abstract:

This is a final report on the research project supported by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research under Grant F49620-87-C-0074, entitled Development of Nonlinear Transient Analysis Algorithms for Dynamics and Control of Large Space Structures, which covered the period of 01 October 1987 to 31 December 1990. The objectives of the research have been 1 the development of improved dynamic modeling techniques that can capture essential response components encompassing an adequate frequency spectrum in large space structures including dynamic localizations, and 2 the development of efficient algorithms for solving the combined structural and control dynamics equations by taking advantage of computer hardware and software advances such as concurrent computers.
