The closed-loop tests of a proposed active control system were carried out in the International Follow-on Structural Test Project rig in melbourne, Australia. These tests represented an important milestone in the development of adaptive structures systems with application to aeroelastic problems since they were the first tests performed on a full-scale airframe to achieve buffeting alleviation. This paper reports the control design strategy and the results obtained in the closed-loop tests.
