Paper Title:
Behavior of Lightweight Piezoceramic Composite Actuator under Compressive Load
  Abstract

In this work, behavior of a unimorph piezoceramic actuator, LIPCA (Lightweight Piezo- Composite Actuator) has been numerically and experimentally investigated. By measuring the lateral displacement created by the compressive load, the buckling load of the LIPCA was determined. Under simply supported configuration, the measured buckling load agreed well with the geometrically nonlinear buckling load from the finite element analysis. The measured data shows that the lateral displacement of the LIPCA is significantly increased when the electric field is prescribed to the LIPCA in addition to the compressive load. The measured data was compared with the computed results from the geometrically nonlinear finite element analysis. The numerical simulation agreed well with the measurement for low compressive load and low electric field.
