Piezoelectric elements connected to shunt circuits and bonded to a mechanical structure form a dissipation device that can be designed to a dd damping to the mechanical system. Due to the piezoelectric effect, part of the vibrat ion energy is transformed into electrical energy that can be conveniently dissipated. Therefo re, by using appropriate electrical circuits, it is possible to dissipate strain energy and, as a consequence, vibration is suppressed through the added passive damping. From… CONTINUE READING
