Deflection of Cross-Ply Composite Laminates Induced by Piezoelectric Actuators

Abstract

The coupling effects between the mechanical and electric properties of piezoelectric materials have drawn significant attention for their potential applications as sensors and actuators. In this investigation, two piezoelectric actuators are symmetrically surface bonded on a cross-ply composite laminate. Electric voltages with the same amplitude and… (More)
