The semi-active concept for vibration suppression in a clamped-free structural configuration is investigated. A fixed-free beam with the semi-active joint, designed to modulate friction, and hence the clamping load level, is considered. The vibration of the beam resulting from assumed initial conditions is examined in the time domain for a range of clamping load levels. The results obtained are studied and a control strategy is proposed to dissipate the energy efficiently and in a controlled way.
