Some interesting results on the vibration and stability of distributed structural systems, vibration-based damage detection, and infinitely variable transmission will be reviewed. The vibration and stability of translating media with time-varying lengths and/or velocities will be addressed. Two types of dynamic stability problems are considered: dynamic stability of translating media during extension and retraction, and parametric instabilities in distributed structural systems with sinusoidally or periodically varying velocities. A new spatial discretization and substructure method, which ensures that all the matching conditions of distributed components are satisfied, and hence uniform convergence of the solutions, will be discussed. The method overcomes the drawbacks of the classical assumed modes and component mode synthesis methods. A new nonlinear model of a slack cable with bending stiffness and arbitrarily moving ends is developed. Only one-tenth of elements are needed to achieve the same accuracy as that of the finite element method. The new methodologies will be applied to elevator systems. The vibration-based damage detection will address two major challenges in model-based damage detection: accurate modeling of structures and the development of a robustness algorithm for identifying the locations and extent of damage. Finally, design, analysis, and control of a novel infinitely variable transmission will be discussed. Experimental results will be presented to validate the theoretical predictions
