Study on Structural Vibration Control by Using Shape Memory Alloy
Shape memory alloy is a good candidate for realizing the passive control of structural vibration due to its excellent characteristic of energy dissipation. In this paper, the damping characteristic of shape memory alloy is quantitatively described based on Liang’s phase transformation model and thermo-mechanical constitutive equation for shape memory alloy. The vibration performances of a beam structure with shape memory alloy damper are investigated based on basic knowledge of vibration theorem. Numerical calculations show that the vibration of beam structure is well reduced by using the shape memory alloy damper.
