Abstract : This summarizes the findings of our effort to exploit the concept of programmable structures and related topics. Results indicate that modeling and control methods are extremely significant in the performance of such integrated structures. In addition results on model updating, eigenstructure assignment, smart rotor shaft control of critical speeds and a new nonlinear model control algorithm have been developed.
