In this note a method of designing optimal vibration control based on Haar functions to control of bounce and pitch vibrations in engine-body vibration structure is presented. Utilizing properties of Haar functions, a computational method to find optimal vibration control for the engine-body system is developed. It is shown that the optimal state trajectories and optimal vibration control are calculated approximately by solving only algebraic equations instead of solving the Riccati differential equation. Simulation results are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the technique.
