Paper Abstract

This paper presents Finite Element analysis of structures with surface bonded piezoelectric patches. The objective of the present investigation is to develop layered piezoelectric elements which can be combined with the plate bending elements in a general purpose software such as MSC/NASTRAN, as a sensor/actuator for the analysis of smart structures. After thorough validation, numerical results are generated for various piezo-electric parameters.
