Vibration Control of Laminated Composite Plates Using Magnetostrictive Layers Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract In the present study, a theoretical formulation of laminated composite plates with integrated smart material layers, used as sensors and actuators for the vibration suppression of laminated composite plates, is presented. The third-order shear deformation theory of Reddy and a simple negative velocity feed back control are used to actively control the dynamic response of the plate. The Navier (analytical) solutions are derived for simply supported boundary conditions and a displacement finite element model is developed for a general plate. The effects of material properties, lamination scheme, and placement of the smart material layer on vibration suppression are investigated.
