Paper Abstract

In this paper we are presenting the experimental dynamic response of an adaptive beam containing embedded mini-devices (sensors and actuators). The specimen used is a cantilever beam made of ALPLEX plastic as host material and PZT-5H as active devices for sensing and actuation. The experimental setup, and experimental results are presented and discussed. The capability of mini-actuators to change the dynamical behavior of the adaptive beam is demonstrated through adaptive stiffening and adaptive damping examples.
