Adaptive Solution for Intelligent Cable Vibration Mitigation
The mechanics of cables is caught either by numeric or analytic models which are able to predict the nonlinear dynamic response of this structural elements with the desired level of approximation. Although cable dynamics has been widely explored in the literature, efforts are still required in the field of cable vibration mitigation to conceive an economical, feasible and robust control strategy. An adaptive control strategy combining a distributed passive solution with a semiactive actuation is here proposed for the purpose of reducing the spatial cable vibrations. The effectiveness of the proposed control policy is investigated by means of experimental tests and a suitable numeric scheme.
