Abstract

The aim of this paper is, first, to derive the motion equations of a flexible beam subject to inequality constraints, by looking for the stationary value of the action integral. The method of the Valentine variables is used to take into account the inequality constraints, in the computation of the stationary value of the action integral. Secondly, a PD feedback control law from the hinge position and velocity is studied; the closed-loop system shows valuable global asymptotic stability properties. The effectiveness of the proposed control structure is tested experimentally.
