    Abstract

    The control problems of flexible structural systems have been of importance and of interest. The geometric nonlinearities should be considered in the analysis of those systems. Simultaneous optimizations of structural and control systems have been studied intensively but most of the works treated only linear structural behaviours due to the complexity of computations. The aim of this study is to clarify the difference in simultaneous optimizations between linear and nonlinear structural models with control systems. We consider two analytical models of flexible robot arm to have linear and nonlinear structural properties and then use angle and angular velocity feedback control rule for the positioning of the arm. The comparisons and examinations are done in both models. A significant difference is seen between them.
