Vibration Control and Actuation of Large-Scale Systems gives a systematically and self-contained description of the many facets of envisaging, designing, implementing, or experimentally exploring advanced vibration control systems. The book is devoted to the development of mathematical methodologies for vibration analysis and control problems of large-scale systems, including structural dynamics, vehicle dynamics and wind turbines, for example. The research problems addressed in each chapter are well motivated, with numerical and simulation results given in each chapter that reflect best engineering practice.

Key Features

  • Provides a series of the latest results in vibration control, structural control, actuation, component failures, and more
  • Gives numerical and simulation results to reflect best engineering practice
  • Presents recent advances of theory, technological aspects, and applications of advanced control methodologies in vibration control


Mechatronics engineers working on robotics and vehicles design, control engineers working on vehicle control systems, mechanical engineers working on vehicle systems, mathematicians and physicians working on complex dynamics, and postgraduate students majoring in mechatronics, control engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics
