Modeling and stabilization of rotating flexible structures

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An outline is presented of a linear model which is obtained by linearizing about a steady-state, planar rotation of a rigid body with an attached flexible appendage modeled as a geometrically exact rod. The linearized model includes terms which arise from the uniform rotation of the assemblage and are consistent with the physics of the nonlinear model. For the problem of stabilizing the system by a control law, the effects which physically correspond to this model are crucial.
