Exact controllability of a multilayer Rao-Nakra plate with clamped boundary conditions

Scott W. Hansen, Oleg Imanuvilov (2011)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

Similarity:

Exact controllability results for a multilayer plate system are obtained from the method of Carleman estimates. The multilayer plate system is a natural multilayer generalization of a classical three-layer “sandwich plate” system due to Rao and Nakra. The multilayer version involves a number of Lamé systems for plane elasticity coupled with a scalar Kirchhoff plate equation. The plate is assumed to be either clamped or hinged and controls are assumed to be locally distributed in a...

Exact Boundary Controllability of a Hybrid System of elasticity by the HUM Method

Bopeng Rao (2010)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

Similarity:

We consider the exact controllability of a hybrid system consisting of an elastic beam, clamped at one end and attached at the other end to a rigid antenna. Such a system is governed by one partial differential equation and two ordinary differential equations. Using the HUM method, we prove that the hybrid system is exactly controllable in an arbitrarily short time in the usual energy space.

Simultaneous controllability in sharp time for two elastic strings

Sergei Avdonin, Marius Tucsnak (2010)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

Similarity:

We study the simultaneously reachable subspace for two strings controlled from a common endpoint. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for simultaneous spectral and approximate controllability. Moreover we prove the lack of simultaneous exact controllability and we study the space of simultaneously reachable states as a function of the position of the joint. For each type of controllability result we give the sharp controllability time.
