    Abstract

    In this paper, a simultaneous optimization method for structural and control systems with nonlinear properties is first introduced. The method was developed by utilizing the step-by-step integration procedure for nonlinear dynamic analysis, the step-by-step sensitivities and the nonlinear mathematical programming method for optimization after obtaining an equivalent structural system through the analogy among the different physical systems. The robustness and the stability of the structural and control systems are also considered. Then we show the some results by applying the method to the designs of position control problems of flexible robot arm systems. The validity and effectiveness are discussed.
