The aim of this article is to establish a novel boundary antidisturbance control to dampen the oscillation of a spatially nonlinear flexible string system influenced by unknown disturbances. To realize this, new disturbance rejection controllers are constructed to effectively suppress the external disturbances for vibration reduction with the help of a newly designed disturbance observer. Adopting Lyapunov direct method, we ensure that the derived control system is uniformly bounded stable. Simulations are also performed to demonstrate the feasibility and validity of the suggested strategy.
