The intention of the present research monograph is to reflect recent developmentswithin this area. Exa mples of application of relevant control algorithms are included to illustrate their practical implementation. These examples are mainly taken from the area of marine technology with the multi-component externalloading being represented as both varying in time and with magnitudes that are represented as statistical quantities. The relevant target group will be mechanical and structural engineers that are concerned with smart components andstructures where optimal design principles and control actuators ar e combined. The book is also relevant for engineers e.g. involved in mechatronics and control applications.
