Abstract

A progress report on an ongoing effort toward identification and control of slewing flexible-member systems is presented from both an analytical and an experimental viewpoint. The laboratory effort is focused on experimentation on a two-link apparatus in which both members are very flexible, and where each member is instrumented with acceleration sensing and is driven by a separate motor equipped with velocity and position sensing. Analytical and experimental investigations are discussed relative to the interaction effects (coupling) between the two flexible members as flexible modes from each become evident in the responses measured relative to one another.
