Abstract

The smart laminated structure composed of common composite material laminae and piezoelectric material laminae have been rapidly developed for its promising high performance application. The development and implementation of finite element methods are required in design and analysis of laminated piezoelectric composite structures. The purpose of our research is to develop a more efficient tinite element code for vibration control and shape control of laminated composite plates, which contain one or more piezoelectric material layers as actuators or sensors subjected to mechanical and electrical loads Each piezoelectric layer can be attach
