Damping of Mechanical Vibrations Using Piezoelements, Including Influence of Connection Layer’s Properties on the Dynamic Characteristic
The paper presents analysis of flexural vibrating machatronic system. Considered system is compounded of a cantilever bending beam and a strip-like piezoelectric transducer. The transducer is bonded with the beam surface by means of connection layer which has homogeneous properties in whole length. External RC circuit is adjoined to the transducer’s clamps. This mechatronic system is loaded with harmoniousness variable force. Beam’s vibrations affect piezoelectric transducer through the agency of connection layer which generates electric charge and produces additional stiffness. Dynamic equations of considered mechatronic system were determined on the basis of elementary beam and transducer’s section dynamic equilibrium. Transducer’s dynamic equation was assigned using transducer’s piezoelectric properties. Dynamic flexibility of considered mechatronic system was assigned on the basis of approximate Galerkin’s method. Solution of beam’s differential motion’s equation was defined as a product of time and displacement’s eigenfunctions which satisfy defined boundary conditions. Dynamic characteristic of considered mechatronic system, including pure shear of the connection layer was assigned on the end of the beam and illustrated on the chart at the same time taking into account beam and transducer’s geometrical and material parameters.
