Project Title: Bonded vs sputtered smart actuators for vibration control
This project will investigate the performance of bonded and sputtered piezoactuators for vinration control.
The project will involve
ii. Working with the materials department to build test samples of beams with bonded and sputtered piezoactuators
iii. Designing and building an instrumented test rig for the piezoactuated beam
iv. Comparing the dynamic performance of both bonded and sputtered actuators
Evaluating simple control systems on the smart beams
