• Analysis of poles and zeros for tapered link designs 

      Girvin, Douglas L.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyWorld Scientific Press, 2003)
      This chapter analyzes the pole and zero locations of a linearly-tapered Euler-Bernoulli beam pinned at one end and free at the other end. Of particular interest is the location of zeros of the transfer function from torque ...
    • Robot vibrations 

      Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAcademic Press, 2001)
      The nature of robotic arms invites vibratory behavior while the function of robotic arms is heavily penalized by that vibration. Consequently, understanding and compensating for the tendencies of a robot to vibrate are of ...
