The active vibration control of laminated composite plates using distributed piezoelectric sensors and actuators (Fig. 1) is studied numerically with a higher-order finite element method (FEM). Reddy’s simplified higher-order theory for transverse shear deformation, which is found to be much more accurate for both thin and thick composite plates as compared… CONTINUE READING
