Paper Abstract

This paper addresses the theory and finite element analysis of the transient large amplitude vibration response of thin composite structures and its control by integrated piezoelectric layers. A geometrically nonlinear finite shell element for the coupled analysis of piezolaminated structures is developed that is based on the first-order shear deformation (Reissner-Mindlin) hypothesis and the assumptions of small strains and moderate rotations of the normal. The finite element model can be applied to smart structures consisting of a composite laminated master structure with arbitrary ply lay-up and integrated piezoelectric sensor and actuator layers or patches attached to the upper and lower surfaces.
