Abstract: We consider the time optimal control problem, with a point target, for an infinite dimensional system described by the Kirchhoff plate equation with distributed control. We prove that time optimal controls have a bang-bang property and, consequently, that they are unique. The main ingredients used to achieve this goal is a new approximate observability property from measurable sets for the system described by the Kirchhoff equation and an abstract result for systems with skew-adjoint generator.
