This paper presents the experimental results of a robust control scheme to suppress the vibration of a flexible structure. The feedback controller is designed using the H-based robust control theory. For this purpose, a flexible bridge tower connected with a crane structure is considered to control its first five vibration modes using a static state feedback controller. A five-degrees-of-freedom reduced-order lumped parameter mass model is derived by neglecting high-frequency vibration modes. The neglected vibration modes constitute the unstructured system uncertainties. An attempt has been made to reduce the unmodeled uncertainties by placing actuators and/or sensors at the node points of a neglected mode. The H -based control law is able to suppress the low-order vibration modes without any spillover instability due to neglected modes. The proposed control scheme is also shown to be robust against parameter variations. The performance of the control scheme is verified both by simulation and experimental studies
