Paper Abstract

Effects of waveform and frequency of electric fields applied to electro-rheological (ER) fluids are investigated on structural damping of a CFRP composite beam containing ER fluids. As the experimental results, the rectangular waveform is more effective for control of ER effects than the sinusoidal one. In vibration analysis, a simplified mass-spring-damper system is adopted to feature the first flexural mode of the cantilevered composite beam, where the damping factor is changed in time as a function of waveform which is applied to electric fields.
