Based on the idea of state parameterization, this paper develops a Fourier-based approach for solving unconstrained and linearly constrained linear quadratic (LQ) optimal control problems involving structural systems. It is shown that these problems can be converted into quadratic programming problems that can readily be solved. In particular, the necessary condition of optimality for unconstrained LQ problems is obtained as a system of linear algebraic equations. An example problem demonstrates the approach for handling LQ problems with state constraints.
