Abstract

GYROSCOPIC SYSTEMS AND THEIR PROPERTIES HAVE BEEN EXTENSIVELY STUDIED AS ANGULAR MOMENTUM DEVICES (AMD), CONTROL MOMENT GYROS (CMG) OR GYROSCOPES FOR VARIOUS APPLICATIONS SUCH AS STRUCTURE CONTROL, STA-BILITY OR ENERGY STORAGE. HOWEVER, MOST OF THE WORKS THAT HAVE BEEN DONE ARE THEORETICAL AND DO NOT PRESENT EXPERIMENTAL IMPLEMENTATION. ON THE OTHER HAND, THESE PAPERS HAVE NOT BEEN FOCUSED ON THE STUDY OF THESE SYSTEMS ON THE DEFLECTION OF CANTILEVER BEAMS OR THE CONTROL OF FLEXURAL STRESSES. IN THIS WORK WE PERFORMED AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF A GYROSCOPE - BEAM SYSTEM (GYROELASTIC BEAM), WHERE WE FIRST USED A SIMPLE TWO-DEGREE OF FREEDOM MODEL TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE TERMS GOVERNING THE DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF GYROELASTIC BEAM SYSTEMS. WE THEN PERFORMED EXPERIMENTAL TESTS AT DIFFERENT VELOCITIES OF THE GYROSCOPIC ACTUATOR AND MEASURED THE DE-FLECTION OF THE SYSTEM. THE RESULTS SHOWED THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE CONTROL OF THE DEFLECTION AND THE BENDING FORCES FOR THIS TYPE OF CONFIG-URATIONS WHICH CAN BE EXPORTED TO HELICOPTER BLADES OR WIND TURBINE BLADES
