Optimisation procedure to position actuators and sensors on a structure using criteria based on physical considerations

A new optimisation algorithm to locate actuators and sensors on the machine frame, based on physical criteria, has been developed. These criteria can be: ability to excite frame modes by the actuator, observability of the frame modes by the sensor, stability of the control transfer function, etc¿ This method has been demonstrated to be more efficient and produce better results than for example genetic algorithms.
