Abstract

In this paper, we consider a dynamic shape control problem with an example of controlling a flexible beam shape. Mathematical formulations are obtained by employing the Green's function approach. Necessary conditions for optimality are derived by considering the quadratic performance criteria. Numerical results for both of the dynamic and the static cases are obtained and compared.
