Boundary stabilization of a thin circular cylindrical shell subject to axisymmetric deformation

  • Yuanhua Deng


In this paper, stabilization of a thin circular cylindrical shell with one edge clamped and the other edge acted by boundary control is studied. It is shown that uniform stability can be achieved.
