The problem of active control of the transient dynamic response of large space structures, modeled as equivalent continua, is investigated. The effects of initial stresses, in the form of in-plane stress resultants in an equivalent plate model, on the controllability of transverse dynamic response, are studied. A singular-solution approach is used to derive a fully coupled set of nodal equations of motion which also include non-proportional passive damping.
