Abstract

Active and passive damping of Euler-Bernoulli beams and their interactions are studied using the beam's exact transfer function model. Viscous and Voigt damping are shown to map the open loop poles and zeros from the imaginary axis in the undamped case into a circle in the left half plane and into the negative real axis. While active P-D collocated control using sky-hooked actuators is known to stabilize the beam, it is shown that the derivative action using proof-mass actuators can destabilize the beam.
