Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to give a detailed insight into the behavior of an open-section beam actuated by skewed piezoelements. It is shown that significant changes in torsional and bending displacements occur even for free, not directly in contact with the actuator, portions of the beam. The effect of those phenomena on the correlation between the results obtained using currently available theoretical models and experimental results is demonstrated. Methods to improve the currently used models are outlined.
