Active vibration damping using piezoelectric materials integrated with structural systems has found widespread use in engineering applications. Current vibration suppression systems usually consist of piezoelectric extension actuators bonded to the surface or embedded within the structure. The use of piezoelectric shear actuators/sensors has been proposed as an alternative, where the electric field is applied perpendicular to the direction of polarization to cause shear deformation of the material. The study first gives the influences of the actuator placement and size on the response of the smart plate and determines the maximum admissible piezoelectric actuation voltage. Based on this model, the optimal sensor locations are found and actual smart plate is produced. The experimental results of that smart plate are then used in the determination of a single input single output system model.
