Abstract

The active control of vibration of piezoelectric flexible smart structure is an important issue in engineering. Reducing vibration may improve the user's comfort and safety. This chapter presents a fuzzy logic approach for active control of vibration of a smart composite laminated spherical shell. The spherical shell is in the form of a layered composite shell having collocated piezoelectric sensor/actuator pair. The vibratory response of the shell is modeled using finite element method. There are five mechanical degrees of freedom per node and the potential difference across the piezoelectric layer is introduced as an additional electrical degree of freedom on an element level. The mode superposition method has been used to transform the coupled finite element equations of motion in the physical coordinates into a set of reduced uncoupled equations in the modal coordinates. The simulation results illustrate that the superiority of designed nonconventional fuzzy logic controller over conventional controllers.

Finite Element Formulation

Finite element method is most commonly used tool to analyze the piezo-laminated composite structures Bathe (2006). Different research groups have used finite element formulation for analyzing static and dynamic response of piezo-laminated structures Wankhade (2013), Sharma et al. (2015), Sharma et al. (2016). In this section, finite element formulation is presented which is used to predict the static and dynamic response of piezo-laminated composite shell structure.
