The aim of this book is to provide insight on the vibration problem in structurally flexible mechanisms, particularly robotic manipulators. The book covers different aspects of flexible structures. It partially includes the fundamental formulations for modelling of a flexible structure actuated with piezoelectric actuators. Mathematical modelling, when possible, as well as experimental techniques for obtaining models of flexible structures are discussed. Additionally, different control techniques adapted for flexible robotic manipulators equipped with piezoelectric actuators and sensors are covered in the book. Depending on the system, linear and non-linear control techniques for stabilising residual vibrations in the system are discussed.However, Windows provides the ability to establish a timer that will interrupt a program at periodic intervals. ... One such timer, supported in C language, is defined in the Multimedia Library. ... the minimum and maximum resolutions supported by the timer service are determined at the beginning of the subroutine that startsanbsp;...
