J. Dyn. Sys., Meas., Control 138(6), 064502 (Mar 30, 2016) (7 pages) Paper No: DS-15-1295; doi: 10.1115/1.4032877 History: Received June 30, 2015; Revised February 22, 2016

This paper presents a new technique for controlling the dynamic response of second-order systems by means of combined displacement and acceleration feedback. The necessary conditions that guarantee the solvability for the problem are formulated. Parametric expressions for the displacement–acceleration gains and the eigenvector matrix are derived. The solution can be applied for the systems with nonsingular or singular mass matrices. Based on the simulation results, we can conclude that the proposed technique is effective.
