We propose a finite difference semi-discrete scheme for the
approximation of the boundary exact controllability problem of
the 1-D beam equation modelling the transversal vibrations
of a beam with fixed ends.
First of all we show that, due to the high frequency spurious
oscillations, the uniform (with respect to the mesh-size)
controllability property of the semi-discrete model fails in the
natural functional setting.
We then prove that there are two ways of restoring the uniform
controllability property:
a) filtering the high frequencies, i.e.
controlling projections on subspaces where the high frequencies
have been filtered; b) adding an extra boundary control to kill
the spurious high frequency oscillations. In both cases the
convergence of controls and controlled solutions is proved
in weak and strong topologies, under suitable assumptions on the
convergence of the initial data.
