Flexible mechanical systems experience undesirable vibration in response to environmental and operational forces. The very existence of vibrations can limit the accuracy of sensitive instruments or cause significant errors in applications where high-precision positioning is essential so in many situations control of vibrations is a necessity. Piezoelectric transducers have been used in countless applications as sensors, actuators, or both. When traditional passive vibration control techniques fail to meet requirements, piezoelectric transducers in conjunction with feedback controllers can be used effectively to suppress vibrations. Piezoelectric Transducers for Vibration Control and Damping presents recent developments in vibration control systems that employ embedded piezoelectric sensors and actuators. In particular, it covers various ways in which active vibration control systems can be designed for piezoelectric laminated structures, paying distinct attention to how such control systems can be implemented in real time. The text contains numerous examples and experimental results obtained from laboratory-scale apparatus, with details of how similar setups can be built.
