Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Wave Propagation in Composite Beam with an Additional Mass
The article is to show results of numerical and experimental examination of changes in wave propagation in a composite rod with additional mass. For numerical modelling the spectral element method is used. For experimental verification the IFFM PAS laboratory equipment was used. As actuators and sensors PZT elements were utilised. The results obtained via numerical and experimental simulations are compared and discussed.
