This project's objective was to design and build a flat plate structure for testing the effectiveness of piezoceramic (PZT) patches as actuating and sensing devices for the vibration suppression of actively controlled structures. The plate was excited to its natural frequencies and controlled by a decentralized output feedback strategy with three collocated actuator/sensor pairs. The vibration levels were significantly reduced thereby validating the use of PZT as integrated actuator/sensors pairs in vibration suppression of actively controlled structures.
