• Analysis of Milling Forces via Angular Convolution 

      Wang, J. - J. Junz; Liang, Steven Y.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Society of Mechanical Engineers, 1991)
      The measurement of cutting force systems is one of the most frequently used techniques for the monitoring of machining processes. Its wide spread application ranges from tool condition identification, feedback control, ...
    • An integral manifold approach to control of a one link flexible arm 

      Siciliano, Bruno; Book, Wayne John; De Maria, Giuseppe (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1986-12)
      The problem of controlling a one link flexible arm is considered in this paper. An assumed mode method is adopted to derive the dynamic equations of motion; the system is then transformed to singularly perturbed form. An ...
    • Performance of Lightweight Manipulators Under Joint Variable Feedback Control: Analytical Study of Limitations 

      Cetinkunt, Sabri; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Control Conference, 1988-06)
      The performance limitations of joint variable feedback controlled manipulators due to manipulator flexibility are studied in fine and gross motions. A finite dimensional time-domain manipulator model is used in the study. ...
    • Reconstruction and Robust Reduced-Order Observation of Flexible Variables 

      Hastings, Gordon Greene; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Society of Mechanical Engineers, 1986-12)
      Most models intended for real-time control of distributed parameter systems such as flexible manipulators rely on N-modal approximation schemes[l]. Measurements made on flexible systems yield time varying quantities which ...
    • Small Motion Experiments on a Large Flexible Arm with Strain Feedback 

      Yuan, B. S.; Huggins, J. D.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Control Conference, 1989-06)
      Initial experiments on state space feedback control of a large flexible manipulator with a parallel linkage drive are described. A linear controller using joint angle and strain measurements was designed to minimize ...
