Title: Automatic tuning of dressed multicell cavities using pressurized balloons

Abstract

A method and system for automatically tuning hollow structures, can include pressurized balloons located in one or more targeted cells of a hollow structure of a device having a hollow structures and respective cells. A pressurized balloon can be inserted into a targeted cell so as to localize plastic deformation to the targeted cell using prescribed values of global force and balloon pressure. A pair of inflate/deflate rods associated with an independent air supply for the pressurized balloon can inflate or deflate the pressurized balloon without affecting other pressurized balloons. The pair of inflate/deflate rods can be automatically insertable or removable from the hollow structure by controlled motorized motions.
