Abstract : The main thrust of our effort has been to consider the control of interconnected rigid and flexible structures. In order to accomplish this, we have utilized different analysis approaches including partial differential equations representing simple substructures and finite element models, radial basis function neural networks and wavelet neural networks representing complex structures. Finally, we have introduced the use of a multiresolutional technique with wavelets. As far as control techniques are concerned, we have concentrated on sliding mode control with a detailed analysis of sampling effects. The controller design in the H(superscript 2) domain.
