Modeling of induced strain actuation of shell structures
(Acoustical Society of America, 1995-05-01)
Based on the thin-shell Donnell theory, a model to represent the action of discrete induced strain actuator patches symmetrically bonded to the surface of a circular cylindrical shell has been developed. The model provides ...
Modeling of distributed piezoelectric actuators integrated with thin cylindrical shells
(Acoustical Society of America, 1994-09-01)
The dynamic interaction between induced strain piezoelectric (PZT) actuators and their host structures is often ignored in the modeling of intelligent structures. A more realistic investigation of intelligent material ...
