Analytical and Experimental Investigation of Flutter Suppression by Piezoelectric Actuation

  title={Analytical and Experimental Investigation of Flutter Suppression by Piezoelectric Actuation},
  author={Jennifer Heeg},
The objective of this research was to analytically and experimentally study the capabilities of piezoelectric plate actuators for suppressing utter. Piezoelectric materials are characterized by their ability to produce voltage when subjected to a mechanical strain. The converse piezoelectric e ect can be utilized to actuate a structure by applying a voltage. For this investigation, a two-degree-of-freedom wind tunnel model was designed, analyzed, and tested. The model consisted of a rigid wing… CONTINUE READING
