Abstract: Observer design for second-order distributed parameter systems in R2 is addressed. Particularly, second order distributed parameter systems without distributed damping are studied. Based on finite number of measurements, exponentially stable observer is designed. The existence, uniqueness and stability of solutions of the observer are based on semigroup theory.
