Model Development and Control Design of Smart Functionally Graded Structures
The paper reviews the modelling of intelligent structures and the control of a low energy active system. The structure composite couples functionally graded material and longitudinally piezoelectric fibre reinforced composite for actuating. Active control based on feedback concept is considered for shape regulating. The problem for optimal selection of the actuators number and locations is considered. Numerical simulations are presented.
