A method to achieve nodal control at the point of excitation in a Bernoulli-Euler beam is developed. It is shown that, for a uniform Bernoulli-Euler beam, the steady state motion at the point of excitation can be absorbed by means of a control force determined from displacement information at the point of application. A closed form solution for the control gain is presented.
