Paper Title:
Dynamic Displacement Tracking for Frame Structures with a Piezoelectric Patch Network Based on Plate Theory
  Abstract

This paper is concerned with the design of a proper piezoelectric patch actuator network in order to track the displacement of the sidewalls of a one-story frame structure; both, for the static and the dynamic case. Weights for each network member found in our previous work were based on beam theory; in the present paper a refinement of the weights by modeling the sidewalls of the frame structure as Kirchhoff plates is presented. For the sake of calculating the refined weights approximate solutions of the plate equations are calculated by an extended Galerkin method.
