In this paper the modelling and Design of a Beam on which two Piezoelectric Ceramic Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) patches are bonded on the top and bottom surface as Sensor/Actuator collocated pair is presented. The work considers the Active Vibration Control (AVC) using Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Controller. The beam is assumed as(More)
Vibration control is an essential problem in different structure. Smart material can make a structure smart, adaptive and self-controlling so they are effective in active vibration control. Piezoelectric elements can be used as sensors and actuators in flexible structures for sensing and actuating purposes. In this paper we use PZT elements as sensors and(More)
In this paper, a quantitative comparison is made between straight beam and curved beam flexures for application on selectively compliant mechanisms. Following a general procedure previously described in the literature, the closed-form compliance equations for both flexural hinges are firstly derived. Then, the two morphologies are compared in terms of(More)
Introducing a suitable model for a structure to understand its behavior under different conditions of loading is very important. Mathematical modeling is the simulation of a physical structure or physical process by means of suitable analytical or numerical construct. One of suitable methods for finding deflection of a beam under different forms of loading(More)
This paper presents a method to determine material of an unknown sample object. The main objective of this study is to design a database for specifying material of an object. We produce the database for different materials which is subjected to different forces. For this purpose we use a Polyvinidilene Fluoride (PVDF) sensor which is a piezoelectric(More)
