An Integral Equation Approach for Velocity Feedback Control Using Piezoelectric Patches
- 179 Downloads
Piezoelectric actuators and sensors are being used increasingly in applications involving vibration/position/shape control devices. Examples where they have been effectively employed include acoustics for noise cancellation [1, 2, 3] with applications to reduce interior noise in aircraft, aerodynamics to adjust wing surfaces  and electronics where they are used in the reading heads in video cassette recorders and compact discs as positioning devices .
