Paper Abstract

One of the most innovative concepts for active fin-buffet alleviation in vertical tail aircraft is the use of piezoelectric patch actuators distributed across the tail surface to actively induce a counter-strain into the structure. This concept involves the development of a novel material compound structure consisting of a fiber-composite aircraft skin, a ceramic patch actuator and the bonding layer between both components. This actively controllable structure has to provide enough authority to dampen the fin- buffet vibrations. It also has to function reliably during long-term aircraft operation under severe mechanical and environmental load conditions.
