Paper Abstract

We use equations of linear elasticity to study vibrations of a simply supported rectangular elastic plate when time harmonic voltages are applied to piezoelectric actuators attached to its bottom and top surfaces. The actuators are modeled as thin surface films, and mixed edge conditions are employed to simulate simple supports.
