Abstract: An infinite number of modes of distributed-parameter structures cause spillover destabilization creating problems in controlling vibrations. This paper introduces cluster filtering and actuation in the analysis of such systems to solve these problems. In this study, the cluster filtering method is proposed where all eigenfunctions are divided into finite number of groups having the same characteristics. The reciprocity in sensing and actuation is also verified. All these theoretical approaches are demonstrated on both flat and curved viaduct road models. This analysis also includes the FEM study of road models.
