Paper Abstract

This paper introduces a new type of passive piezoelectric shunt controller which is capable of damping multiple modes of a flexible structure using one piezoelectric transducer. The current flowing shunt technique has a number of advantages over comparable techniques; it is simpler to implement and requires less discrete circuit elements. The passive control strategy is validated through experimental work on a piezoelectric laminated simply supported beam.
