    A self-tuning procedure is proposed for an active structural element with collocated sensing and actuation (a so-called ‘Smart Disc’). The procedure aims at optimal active damping by means of Integral Force Feedback control. In case the behavior of the structure to be damped may be described by a single dominant vibration mode, self-tuning is realized in two fairly simple steps: (1) recursive estimation of three system parameters and (2) determination of the optimal controller parameters. However, if the assumption concerning a single dominant vibration mode does not hold, both steps in the selftuning procedure may easily fail.
