Paper Abstract

Smart structures can be developed using a variety of sensors and actuators such as piezoelectric, fiber-optic, acoustic, and pyroelectric materials, etc. A piezoelectric material produces electric charge when it is mechanically deformed and conversely, an electric potential causes mechanical deformation of the material. The main thrust of research in the area of smart structures has been in vibration control and geometric shape manipulation. Finite element analysis techniques have been introduced recently in vibration suppression and modal control. In the present study a finite element formulation is developed to analyze laminated plates with arbitrarily placed piezoceramic patches. The technique is applied to obtain static response and stress fields due to application of electric field to the piezoceramic patches.
