To obtain information on the character of sediments and basement depths, audiomagnetotelluric AMT , controlled-source audiomagnetotelluric CSAMT and central-loop transient electromagnetic TEM data were collected on the largest island within the delta. The data were inverted individually and jointly for 1-D models of electric resistivity.
By employing Marquardt—Levenberg inversion, we found that a 3-layer model comprising a resistive layer overlying sequentially a conductive layer and a deeper resistive layer was sufficient to explain all of the electromagnetic data.
However, the top of the basal resistive layer from electromagnetic-only inversions was much shallower than the well-determined basement depth observed in high-quality seismic reflection images and seismic refraction velocity tomograms. To resolve this discrepancy, we jointly inverted the electromagnetic data for 4-layer models by including seismic depths to an interface between sedimentary units and to basement as explicit a priori constraints.
We have also estimated the interconnected porosities, clay contents and pore-fluid resistivities of the sedimentary units from their electrical resistivities and seismic P-wave velocities using appropriate petrophysical models.
According to an interpretation of helicopter TEM data that cover the entire Okavango Delta and borehole logs, the second and third layers may represent lacustrine sediments from Paleo Lake Makgadikgadi and a moderately resistive freshwater aquifer comprising sediments of the recently proposed Paleo Okavango Megafan, respectively. It is one of Earth's largest inland deltas or megafans consisting of a multitude of channels, islands and both perennial and seasonal swamps that make it a unique ecosystem.
Figure 1. Open in new tab Download slide Map of northern Botswana showing the Okavango Delta and investigation sites. Thata Island is located within HR1. Landsat 8 satellite image courtesy of the U. Geological Survey. About 6 km3 of water enter the Okavango Delta through direct rainfall during the wet season in January and February McCarthy , and the Okavango River originating in the Angolan highlands contributes roughly 10 km3 of water per year.
Most of the riverine waters enter the Okavango Delta during annual floods that occur, with some delay, after the rainfalls in the Angolan highlands. The peak of the flood affects the Panhandle region Fig. Because of the hot semi-arid climate, about 95 per cent of the water entering the delta is lost through evapotranspiration; only a small volume of water percolates into the aquifer systems or leaves the delta by surface flow Gieske ; McCarthy ; Milzow et al.
As a result of evapotranspiration, concentrations of dissolved solutes in groundwater are expected to increase with time. Different mechanisms have been proposed during the last two decades to explain how the shallow aquifers can maintain freshwater by effectively removing minerals from the shallow subsurface.
First, uptake of soluble ions in peat may remove solutes from swamp and channel waters McCarthy et al. Third, salt that accumulates beneath many deltaic islands as a result of evapotranspiration McCarthy et al. Most of the Okavango Delta lies between the northeast—southwest trending normal faults Gumare and Thamalakane faults in Fig. The width of the Okavango Rift is approximately km between the Gumare and Thamalakane faults Fig. Tectonic activity has impacted the channel morphology within the delta McCarthy et al.
As a result of tectonic movements, hydrological conditions and sedimentation cycles within the Kalahari Basin are assumed to have varied between fluvial, lacustrine, megafan and aeolian Podgorski et al. An area of 66 km2 to the south and the east of the Okavango Delta is understood to have been covered by a mega-lake in the Pleistocene epoch Burrough et al. The age and evolution of the mega-lake are not well established Ringrose et al. The editing, processing and inversion methodologies applied to the HTEM data have been described in detail by Podgorski et al.
After processing, station spacing along lines was 25 m for all data sets. Figure 2. Justification for the paleo megafan is briefly provided in the text and fully explained in Podgorski et al. Figure modified from Meier et al. Although nearly all of the HTEM data can be explained by a simple 3-layer resistive—conductive—resistive model, their joint interpretation with borehole logs and seismic data necessitates a 4-layer model beneath a large region of the delta Podgorski et al.
The surface resistive layer Fig. The underlying conductive layer Figs 2c—e is explained as lacustrine sediments consisting of clay units intercalated with sandy units containing saline pore water. In a regional context, Podgorski et al. Starting at a depth of m, a more resistive basal structure is observed under the Panhandle and at greater depth also beneath the western, central and northeastern parts of the delta.
Podgorski et al. Its semi-circular outline in Fig. Since the resistivity of the presumed POM probably lies between the resistivities of the overlying lacustrine PLM layer and the underlying basement and it is thin compared to its burial depth, we face a classic suppression or equivalence issue in the inversion of the electromagnetic data e.
Raiche et al. On the western side of the delta at HR2 in Fig. Underneath the north-central and central areas of the delta at Jao and Golf Course in Fig. Compared to the 1-D models derived from the HTEM data, it was anticipated that the combination of electromagnetic data generated by both inductively and galvanically coupled sources would yield improved constraints on the resistivities of the more resistive structures. Furthermore, joint interpretation of the new electromagnetic models, seismic reflection images and tomographic seismic refraction models was expected to provide a more convincing test of the POM hypothesis.
The processing scheme applied to the seismic reflection data and the tomographic method used to invert the seismic refraction data have been described in Reiser et al. Since the ERT data are heavily affected by coupling problems, they contain information only for the upper 25 m of the sedimentary sequence Podgorski et al. The relevant data processing and editing steps are then summarized and the single- and joint-inversion results are described in some detail.
Using the seismic depths to two layer interfaces as constraints on the joint inversion of the electromagnetic data, we evaluate the compatibility of the electromagnetic data with the seismic reflection images and tomographic seismic refraction models by Podgorski et al. We relate the electrical resistivities and seismic P-wave velocities of the sedimentary layers to consistent ranges of porosity, clay content and pore-fluid resistivity using suitable petrophysical models for mixtures of sand, clay and pore fluid.
Finally, we provide geological and petrophysical interpretations of the individual layers. The most notable surface feature of geoelectric significance is the river north of the CSAMT transmitter electrodes. Figure 3. Satellite image provided by the European Space Agency. The electric and magnetic field sensors were arranged in the x- and y-directions oriented along and perpendicular to the profile length A in Fig. The transient dynamics of charging a storage capacitor are presented for the individual and combined power sources.
Complications arising from backwards electromechanical and mutual coupling are discussed. This method has the better ability to bend skins with high in-plane stiffness, because the SMA honeycomb core generates a recovery-shear-force and applies the force uniformly to the skins. Hence, although this sandwich beam is really lightweight and has a moderate specific bending stiffness, the beam can be bent by raising the temperature. Pre-shear-strain was applied to the SMA honeycomb core, and the both ends of the two skins were fixed.
When the beam was heated, it was bent upward taking the form of a sigmoid curve. Furthermore, it was verified that the beam was able to generate the sufficient actuation force. Then, when the specimen was cooled down to the room temperature, the specimen returned to the straight beam again. Hence the twoway actuation is possible by heating and cooling. Also the mechanism of this bending deformation could be clarified by a numerical simulation using the finite element method.
Author s : Richard D. Widdle Jr. Grimshaw; Moushumi Shome Show Abstract A method is described for solving an inverse design problem to find the unassembled, stress-free component shapes of a structure thatis integrally actuated with shape memory alloy SMA actuators.
Morphing and multifunctional structures are of interest in the aerospace industry becasue of the potential for improving structural and aerodynamic performance across multiple operating conditions. The focus of this work is on structures that are morphed with SMA flexural actuators. For the case where the geometry is known for unassembled components, assembly can be simulated to find the assembled shapes of the morphing structure. In the usual design case, however, only the desired shapes as assembled are known in multiple actuation states, and the corresponding unassembled shapes must be determined by an iterative solution process.
An iterative finite element analysis approach to this problem is reported here. First an initial guess for the unassembled shapes is made and assembly is simulated with the finite element method. The resulting shapes are found for both SMA phases and compared with the desired shapes.
A gradient-based optimization method is employed to update the initial geometry and iteration continues until the desired shapes are achieved. A simplified method of modeling the SMA material behavior is used for computational efficiently. It is found that this approach provides a practical way to solve the inverse design problem for structures that are integrally actuated with SMA material.
To investigate the restoring force characteristics of SMA wire, cyclic tensile tests on superelastic NiTi SMA wires with three diameters were carried out. The effects of the different loading conditions, namely: cyclic loading-unloading number, strain amplitude, loading frequency and ambient temperature, on the mechanical behavior described by some fundamental quantities, such as energy dissipation per cycle, secant stiffness, equivalent damping, residual strain, were examined.
The temperature changes of the SMA wires due to the latent heat under different loading conditions were also discussed. The complications of current treatment methods have encouraged the development of a novel treatment method based on mechanotransduction, the process through which mechanical tensile loading induces longitudinal growth of intestine.
Animal based studies with simple extension devices have demonstrated the potential of the treatment to grow healthy bowel, but an implantable device suitable for clinical use remains undeveloped. This paper presents the development of an instrumented fully implantable bowel extender based upon a shape memory alloy driven linear ratchet that can be controlled and monitored remotely. The overall bowel extender system is described with respect to specifications for pig experimental tests.
The functionality of the mechanical and electrical subsystems of the device are detailed and experimentally validated on the bench top, in segments of living bowel tissue removed from a pig, and in cadaveric pigs. Mechanical loading characteristics and safe load limits on bowel tissue are identified. Results from these experiments establish the readiness of the device to be tested in living pigs, enabling studies to move one step closer to clinical studies.
Unfortunately current treatments i. In response to this problem, this paper describes an active cancellation device based on a hand-held Shape Memory Alloy SMA actuated stabilization platform. The assistive device is designed to hold and stabilize various objects e.
To aid in the design, performance prediction and control of the device, a device model is described that accounts for the device kinematics, SMA thermo-mechanics, and the heat transfer resulting from electrical heating and convective cooling. The system of differential equations in this device model coupled with the controller gain can be utilized to design the operation given a frequency range and power requirement.
The extent of cancellation measured for both single-frequencies and actual human tremor disturbances demonstrate the promise of this approach as a broadly used assistive device for the multitudes afflicted by tremor. Author s : Terrence Johnson ; Mary Frecker ; Farhan Gandhi Show Abstract Research efforts have shown that helicopter rotor blade morphing is an effective means to improve flight performance.
Previous example of rotor blade morphing include using smart-materials for trailing deflection and rotor blade twist and tip twist, the development of a comfortable airfoil using compliant mechanisms, the use of a Gurney flap for air-flow deflection and centrifugal force actuated device to increase the span of the blade.
In this paper we explore the use of a bistable mechanism for rotor morphing, specifically, blade chord extension using a bistable arc. Increasing the chord of the rotor blade is expected to generate more lift-load and improve helicopter performance. Bistable or "snap through" mechanisms have multiple stable equilibrium states and are a novel way to achieve large actuation output stroke. Bistable mechanisms do not require energy input to maintain a stable equilibrium state as both states do not require locking.
In this work, we introduce a methodology for the design of bistable arcs for chord morphing using the finite element analysis and pseudo-rigid body model, to study the effect of different arc types, applied loads and rigidity on arc performance. To date, the suspension system of several high performance vehicles has been equipped with MR fluid based dampers and research is ongoing to develop MR fluid based mounts for engine and powertrain isolation.
MR fluid based devices have received attention due to the MR fluid's capability to change its properties in the presence of a magnetic field. This characteristic places MR mounts in the class of semiactive isolators making them a desirable substitution for the passive hydraulic mounts. In this research, an analytical model of a mixed-mode MR mount was constructed.
The magnetorheological mount employs flow valve mode and squeeze mode. Each mode is powered by an independent electromagnet, so one mode does not affect the operation of the other. The analytical model was used to predict the performance of the MR mount with different sets of parameters. Furthermore, in order to produce the actual prototype, the analytical model was used to identify the optimal geometry of the mount.
The experimental phase of this research was carried by fabricating and testing the actual MR mount. The manufactured mount was tested to evaluate the effectiveness of each mode individually and in combination. The experimental results were also used to validate the ability of the analytical model in predicting the response of the MR mount. Based on the observed response of the mount a suitable controller can be designed for it. However, the control scheme is not addressed in this study.
However, the rheological properties of grease carrier materials are very sensitive to temperature. Therefore, the temperature effect on the yield stress of MRGs may be one of the main concerns in developing these materials. In this study, the steady-shear magneto-rheological response of MRGs subject to various temperatures is investigated. All experimental data are obtained for magnetic fields ranging from 0.
It is observed that temperature has a pronounced effect on the field induced yield stress of MRGs. A new yield stress model for MRGs which is a function of magnetic field and temperature is proposed based on the Herschel-Bulkley constitutive equation and the Arrhenius relationship. Excellent agreement between the model predictions and experimental data is obtained. Nima Mahmoodi ; Mehdi Ahmadian Show Abstract The vibration control of microelectromechanical structures is an interesting and challenging research area that is extensively applicable in micro-mass measurement, micro-sensors and micro-mirror control.
An active vibration control technique based on positive position feedback method is constructed in this paper. This method is used to control the vibration of microcantilevers through actuation of a piezoelectric layer that covers one side of the microcantilever.
The modified version of positive position feedback used in this paper, employs a second order compensator for vibration suppression, and a first order compensator provides damping. Since the positive position feedback control is based on strain sensing approach, it is extensively applied to piezoelectrically controlled microcantilevers. Similar to conventional positive position feedback, stability conditions are global and independent of the dynamical characteristics of the open-loop system.
Root locus diagrams are used to find proper compensator frequency and damping of the closed loop system. A numerical simulation is performed to evaluate the performance of the modified positive position feedback for both steady-state and transient dynamic control.
The results indicate that the proposed method is more effective in controlling both steady-state and transient dynamics than conventional positive position feedback. Author s : Su Zhao ; Jens Twiefel ; Joerg Wallaschek Show Abstract A novel active squeeze film journal air bearing actuated by high power piezoelectric transducers is presented. The proposed bearing uses in-air squeeze film levitation to suspend the rotating spindle without contact. Unlike conventional journal bearings, the presented bearing journal is formed by multiple independently vibrating surfaces driven individually by piezoelectric transducers.
Langevin type piezoelectric transducers with a special radiation surface are developed. Detailed design procedures to develop the ultrasonic transducers are presented. A complete spindle-bearing system is constructed to test the proposed squeeze film bearing. Load carrying forces are measured at different vibration amplitude and compared with the calculated results.
The proposed squeeze film journal bearing is operated in ultrasonic frequency range. The achieved load capacity is about 50N, which is five times of the load capacity achieved by the previous squeeze film bearings reported in the literatures. Hohl ; M. Neubauer ; S. Schwarzendahl; L. Panning; J. Wallaschek Show Abstract In this paper the damping capability of piezoelectric shunting is analysed for bladings. Beside the broadly used inductance-resistance networks, negative capacitance techniques are considered.
For the validation of the theoretic results, a test rig with a model of a bladed disk with eight blades has been manufactured and equipped with two collocated piezoceramics at each blade. One of the piezoceramics is used as an actuator for an engine order excitation. The second piezoceramics is used for shunt damping. The experimental results of the test rig are compared with numerical results. Therefore, the structure and the piezoceramics are modeled in a finite element program.
The modal excitation forces of the piezoelectric actuators are derived for all modes of the structure by a static analysis with a specific voltage applied to the piezoceramics. In addition, using the modal displacement field of the static analysis the modal excitation forces can be calculated. Furthermore, the number of degrees of freedom of the system is reduced by a modal reduction technique.
The electrical behavior of the piezoceramics connected to each blade is modeled by one degree of freedom and coupled with the mechanical system described above. The different damping concepts are compared with respect of their effectiveness. Because of the piezoelectric effect, vibration energy is converted into electrical energy.
In the attached network some part of the energy is dissipated. Switching shunts offer the possibility to adapt to varying excitation frequencies. In this paper, the damping performance of different switching techniques are calculated considering all important network parameters and non-idealities in the switching boards.
Measurements on a clamped beam are performed to validate the results, and the switching techniques are applied to a squealing disc brake. It is shown that due to the piezoelectric shunt damping the sound pressure level can be reduced considerably. Author s : F. Casadei ; M. Ruzzene ; B. Beck ; K. Cunefare Show Abstract Periodic arrays of hybrid shunted piezoelectric actuators are used to suppress vibrations in an aluminum plate.
Commonly, piezoelectric shunted networks are used for individual mode control, through tuned, resonant RLC circuits, and for broad-band vibration attenuation, through negative impedance converters NIC. Periodically placed resonant shunts allow broadband reduction resulting from the attenuation of propagating waves in frequency bands which are defined by the spatial periodicity of the array and by the shunting parameters considered on the circuit. Such attenuation typically occurs at high frequencies, while NICs are effective in reducing the vibration amplitudes of the first modes of the structure.
The combination of an array resonant shunts and NICs on a two-dimensional 2D panel allows combining the advantages of the two concepts, which provide broadband attenuation in the high frequency regimes and the reduction of the amplitudes of the low frequency modes. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the proposed approach, and frequency response measurements on a cantilever aluminum plate demonstrate that an attenuation region of about Hz is achieved with a maximum 8 dB vibration reduction.
Especially the last field may create a mass market for piezoelectric elements. Due to their easy use and low resonance frequency, bimorphs seem to fit energy harvesting demands quite well. To get the best possible power output, the element has to be designed as good as possible to fit the environmental excitation characteristics as excitation frequency and amplitude.
Due to the need of a good understanding of the resulting system, a model based approach is desirable for the design of the used bimorphs. This is the case not only in Energy Harvesting systems but in most of the mentioned applications. Author s : W. Kim ; A. Kurdila ; V. Stepanyan; D. Inman ; J. Vignola Show Abstract In this paper, we consider a linear piezoelectric structure which employs a fast-switched, capacitively shunted subsystem to yield a tunable vibration absorber or energy harvester.
The dynamics of the system is modeled as a hybrid system, where the switching law is considered as a control input and the ambient vibration is regarded as an external disturbance. It is shown that under mild assumptions of existence and uniqueness of the solution of this hybrid system, averaging theory can be applied, provided that the original system dynamics is periodic.
The resulting averaged system is controlled by the duty cycle of a driven pulse-width modulated signal. The response of the averaged system approximates the performance of the original fast-switched linear piezoelectric system. It is analytically shown that the averaging approximation can be used to predict the electromechanically coupled system modal response as a function of the duty cycle of the input switching signal.
This prediction is experimentally validated for the system consisting of a piezoelectric bimorph connected to an electromagnetic exciter. Experimental results show that the analytical predictions are observed in practice over a fixed "effective range" of switching frequencies.
The same experiments show that the response of the switched system is insensitive to an increase in switching frequency above the effective frequency range. Zhao; X. Wang; J. Tang Show Abstract Integrating a piezoelectric circuitry, which consists of a piezoelectric transducer connected with electrical circuitry elements, to a mechanical structure can alter the dynamic behavior of the structural system.
From a system dynamics standpoint, these circuitry elements are analogous to the mass, damping, and stiffness elements in the mechanical regime. Using op amp circuits we can synthesize circuitry elements with interesting characteristics such as tunable or negative elements.
In this research, we demonstrate that the negative resistance element can reduce the overall system damping, thereby changing the dynamic response of mechanical structures. In particular, it will be shown that not only the response amplitude can be amplified; the response pattern in the mistuned periodic structure can be altered significantly upon the change of local structural properties. Such phenomena are analyzed systematically, and the potential advantage for structural damage detection is highlighted.
High fabrication accuracy and low tolerances are crucial points in mechanical manufacturing causing high device costs. Therefore, we developed a piezoelectric composite actuator with inherent stress - strain transformation.
Basically, piezoceramic sheets are laminated with spring steel of a certain curvature, which can be realised by a comparatively simple fabrication technique. The working diagram of these composite bow actuators showed a high level of performance adaptable to a wide range of applications. The authors established the value chain covering the piezoceramic formulation, the processing technology and the design in view of optimum system performance.
The paper presents an overview of the design principles, simulation and various aspect of fabrication technology including lamination, sintering and polarization. The new devices are useable in different sectors, for example in automotive industry as solid state transducer or as the active part in injectors.
Moreover, the composite bow actuators may find application in microsystems technology, micro optics and micro fluidics as well as vibration dampers. The composite bow actuators can be used as single component transducer, as well as multi-bow actuator in series or parallel combination on demand. Munzinger; M. Weis ; S. Herder Show Abstract Guiding systems figure amongst the central components in the flux of a machine tool.

Compared to modular, conventional systems, adaptronic systems offer considerable cost savings potentials thanks to their increased functional degree of integration .
Liu ; C. Lee ; W. Wu Show Abstract When a piezoelectric transformer PT connected with two slight different loads, the load currents will not be equal, especially in the case with large loading currents. The current balance issue is thus one of significant issues on the design of dual-output PT which expected to deliver equal current to external loads. The condition of the load currents balance and imbalance for dual output PT will be discussed in this paper.
The inherent equivalent circuit components of PTs could be adopted to replace external reactive component in conventional balanced circuit. By setting the operating frequency and designing the parameters in the equivalent circuit of PTs, the current balance condition can be accomplished by itself. A dual-output Rosen-type piezoelectric transformer with size 53x15x2. The experimental verification will also be detailed in this paper. In this paper, many hard works have been carried out to make SMP induced while along with swelling effect.
Based on the Free-volume theory, Rubber Elasticity Theory and Mooney-Rivlin Equation, it is theoretically and experimentally demonstrated the feasibility of SMP activated by swelling effect. The mechanism behind it is solvent acting as plasticizer, to reduce the glass transition temperature Tg and melting temperature Tm of polymers, make them softer and more flexible, facilitating the diffusion of the molecules to polymer chains, and then separating them.
In addition to this physical action, the intermolecular interactions among the chains are weakened, because interactions are hindered at the points where the plasticizer is located. And it is qualitatively identified the role of swelling effect playing in influencing the transition temperature. Swelling effect occurs due to the interaction between macromolecules and solvent molecules, leading to free volume of polymeric chains increasing namely the flexibility of polymer chains increasing , resulting in the Tg decreasing.
All above mentioned investigation can be used to confirm that the shape recovery is induced by swelling effect. This actuation almost is applicable for all the SMP and SMP composite, as the swelling theory is almost applicable for all the polymeric materials.
Author s : M. Riva ; P. Bettini ; L. Di Landro; G. Sala Show Abstract This paper deals with some of the critical aspects regarding Shape Memory Composite SMC design: firstly some technological aspects concerning embedding technique and their efficiency secondarily the lack of useful numerical tools for this peculiar design.

Author s : H. Guo; W. Liao Show Abstract The objective of this paper is to develop smart actuators for knee braces as assistive devices for helping disabled people to recover their mobility. The actuator functions as motor, clutch, and brake. In the design, magnetorheological MR fluids are utilized to generate controllable torque. To decrease the size of the actuator, motor and MR fluids are integrated. MR fluids are filled inside the DC motor based actuator.
Additional design factors of smart actuators including influence of permanent magnet on MR fluids and dynamic sealing are also considered. Finite element model of the smart actuator is built and analyzed. A prototype of the smart actuator with two different inner armatures is fabricated and their characteristics are investigated.
Torques are compared between simulation and experiments. The results show that the developed smart actuator with multiple functions is promising for assistive knee braces. While past research has proven that PBP actuators are capable of generating deflections three times higher than conventional bimorph actuators, this paper quantifies the work output and power consumption under various axial loads, at various frequencies.
An analytical model is presented that supports the experimental findings regarding the increasing work output and natural frequency shift under increasing axial loads. Furthermore, increasing axial loads shows an increase in open-loop piezoelectric hysteresis, resulting in an increasing phase lag in actuator response. Current measurements show an electromechanical coupling that leads to power peaks around the natural frequency. Increasing axial loads has no effect on the power consumption, while increasing the work output by a factor of three, which implies a significant increase in work density over the piezoelectric material itself.
Author s : L. Gaudiller ; S. Harari ; C. Richard Show Abstract The new proposed method is the hybridization between SSDI techniques and active methods developed for modal active control such as time sharing control and modal observer in order to control several modes of a structure with a good performance but without operative energy. It is designed in order to minimize the number of control components. The principal application field is the transportation.
It is based on several modal SSDI controllers which act on the same actuator voltage. They are synchronized on each extremum of the corresponding modal displacement. Modal displacements are reconstructed thanks to a modal model of the smart structure from a modal observer. In order to reduce the number of actuators, the time sharing method is adapted to SSDI techniques: all the modal SSDI are connected to the same piezoelectric actuator, but only one controller is selected to control the voltage inversion for each step time.
In order to select modal SSDI controller having the most effective action for damping, a computation of modal energies is realized from the estimated modal state. A controller selector is used to connect the modal SSDI command, whose corresponding mode has the highest modal energy , to the switch trigger. An application on a smart clamped free beam including one actuator and two sensors is presented.
Three modes are controlled and the modal responses are observed on five modes. The results show that the control reduces significantly the vibration of targeted modes. Moreover, the method is not subject to stability problems. Richard ; S. Harari ; L. The principle of modal SSDI is to synchronize the piezoelectric voltage inversion or switching with the extremum of the targeted mode modal displacement. This modal displacement is estimated even in the case of complex, broadband or noisy excitation with a modal observer.
The switching process control induces a non linear processing of the piezoelectric voltage which results in a cumulative self generated control voltage in phase with the mode speed, thus generating an important damping of the targeted mode. This voltage self building is optimal if the piezoelectric voltage is maximum when the modal displacement of the targeted mode is extremum.
But in the case of complex excitation or when the targeted mode amplitude is lower than higher modes, the performances are altered. The proposed method consists in implementing a decision algorithm allowing waiting for the next voltage extremum before to trig the voltage inversion, the whole process being globally synchronized with the targeted modal displacement.
Indeed, the targeted mode amplitude is reduced by using part of the energy of the higher modes which enhances the build up of the self generated piezoelectric control voltage. Simulations carried out on a clamped free beam are presented. Results obtained first with a bimodal excitation then in the case of pulse excitation demonstrates a large increase of the damping on the targeted mode.
Richard ; L. Gaudiller Show Abstract Smart structures controlled by active algorithms proved their high efficiency. But active control requires external energy and heavy amplifier which strongly limit the applications in the transportation field. An alternative to active control is given by semi-active control which does not require operative energy but which is less efficient than active control. The proposed hybrid control associates the active control with semi-active control in order to benefit from the respective advantages of both methods.
This hybrid control is intended to control vibration modes with the same performances than active control while reducing significantly the operative energy. An application on the second mode of clamped-free smart beam is presented. The results show that this new control approach appears to be able to decrease the required external energy and to reduce the power and consequently the weight of the active control amplifiers while maintaining the same damping performances.
This control can be used, for example, in the transportation field to improve the lifetime of systems which use smart structure. Author s : Travis J. Zelfer; Derik S. Warne ; Umesh A. Korde Show Abstract The high levels of noise generated during launch can destroy sensitive equipment on space craft. While wall mounted transducers can reduce the low frequency noise during a launch, they also can create areas of higher increased sound pressure in the payload fairings.
Ferroelectret cellular polymer foams with high piezoelectric coupling constants are being used as new types of actuators and sensors. Further impedance control through the inverse piezoelectric effect will lead to a new "semi-active" approach that will reduce low frequency noise levels. Combining layers of conventional nonpiezoelectric foam and ferroelectret materials with a multiple loop feedback system will give a total damping effect that is adaptable over a wide band of low frequencies.
This paper covers the manufacturing methods that were used to make polarized polypropylene foam, to test the foam for its polarized response and its noise shielding ability. Author s : Scott A. Ouellette ; David D. Mascarenas; Michael D. Todd Show Abstract Structural health monitoring consists of an integrated paradigm of sensing, data interrogation, and statistical modeling that results in a strategy to assess the performance of a structure.
Sensor networks play a central role in this paradigm, as such networks typically perform much of the actuation, data acquisition, information management, and even local computing necessary to enable the overall implementation of the strategy, increasingly in a wireless mode. In many applications power provision can become a limiting factor, as the conventional strategy for wireless networks is a battery. However, batteries require replacement, as their useful shelf lives often do not exceed the intended service of their host structures.
Energy harvesting has emerged as a class of potential network powering solutions whereby one form of energy available on the structure is harvested and converted to useful electrical energy. The objective of this work is to investigate the harvesting of energy from galvanic corrosion that typically occurs naturally in many structures. Specifically, this study considers corrosion between magnesium and graphite rods embedded in a concrete structure immersed in seawater.
The energy was evaluated by connecting a. A carbon fiber admixture was introduced to the concrete host to improve electrical conductivity, and the power increase was calculated from voltage measurements. The investigation concludes that the voltage levels achieved may be naturally integrated with a booster circuit to provide CMOS voltage levels suitable for sensor network powering in some applications.
Rastgaar ; M. Ahmadian ; S. OEC is an output feedback control method applicable to multiple-input, multiple-output linear systems. In this paper, application of OEC for active vibration cancellation in a plate is presented. A steel plate clamped at four edges is used as a test plate and piezoelectric actuators are used as control actuators.
Accelerometers are used for measuring the acceleration and displacement at ten locations on the plate. A tonal disturbance with a frequency of Hz is applied to the plate by an electromagnetic actuator.
After identification of the state-space model of the plate, orthogonal eigenstructure control is used to find the control gains that decouple the modes of vibrations and reduce transferring of vibrational energy between them. The results show significant vibration suppression throughout the plate.
The deformations of a symmetric structure are analyzed in translation and torsion, respectively. The numerical results obtained by using the simplified analytical method are then compared to those obtained from the analysis of the models using the software SAP The results show that the simplified analytical method can be an effective tool for engineering analysis of an asymmetric structure.
However, the property of all-steel BRBs with cruciform cross section encased in a square steel tube remains insufficiently studied. In this paper, the properties of this kind of BRBs, which were used in two office buildings in Beijing, were examined by full-scale test. First, initial design was done according to the client's requirement. Then, two full-scale specimens were tested under uniaxial quasi-static cyclic loading.
The test results indicate that there should be no welding in yielding portion of the core. Finally, the full-scale subassemblage test was done with an improved BRB and gusset plates installed in a frame. The result shows that the brace exhibited high energy dissipation capacity and stable hysteretic characteristic.
According to the results from above tests, some important issues are summarized to provide advices for practical applications. The optimal parameters of liquid dampers are optimized by Genetic Algorithm. The structural response with and without liquid dampers under bi-directional earthquakes are calculated. The results show that the torsionally coupled response of structures can be effectively suppressed by use of liquid dampers with optimal parameters.

MFC actuator is consisting of rectangular piezoceramic fibers and interdigitated electrode, which can provide great flexibility, large induced strain and directional actuating force. In this paper, vibration control performance of underwater smart hull structure with MFC actuator is evaluated. As a first step, dynamic modeling of underwater hull structure is conducted by using finite element technique and then modal characteristics of hull structure are investigated.
For the verification of the proposed finite element model, numerical results of modal analysis are compared with those of experimental modal test results. In order to evaluate vibration control performance, linear quadratic Gaussian LQG controller is designed and experimentally implemented to the system. Control responses are evaluated in the water tank and presented in both time and frequency domain.
Author s : Soong Oh Han ; Kai Wolf ; Holger Hanselka ; Thilo Bein Show Abstract The reliability assessment of complex adaptive systems requires the identification of dominant input parameters and the quantitative evaluation of the associated effects on the system performance. This can be achieved using experimental and numerical sensitivity analysis methods. In this paper a simulation based approach is presented, assessing the system performance of an active vibration isolation device with respect to parameter variations, such as temperature, load amplitude, material properties and geometry dimensions of the structural elements.
The modeling of the active system is described utilizing the Finite Element Method and a Krylov Subspace based model order reduction scheme. The implemented Morris screening technique and variance based sensitivity analysis are discussed.
For the example of an active vibration system the sensitivity analysis strategy is outlined and it is shown that a quantitative assessment of the system performance considering large scale parameter variations is provided. The objective is to determine the number and position of absorbers to minimize the coupling effects of translation-torsion of structures at minimum cost. A procedure for a multi-objective optimization problem is developed by integrating a dominance-based selection operator and a dominance-based penalty function method.
Based on the two-branch tournament genetic algorithm, the selection operator is constructed by evaluating individuals according to their dominance in one run. The technique guarantees the better performing individual winning its competition, provides a slight selection pressure toward individuals and maintains diversity in the population. Moreover, due to the evaluation for individuals in each generation being finished in one run, less computational effort is taken.
Penalty function methods are generally used to transform a constrained optimization problem into an unconstrained one. The dominance-based penalty function contains necessary information on non-dominated character and infeasible position of an individual, essential for success in seeking a Pareto optimal set. The proposed approach is used to obtain a set of non-dominated designs for a six-storey three-dimensional building with shape memory alloy dampers subjected to earthquake.
Kerschen; M. Ruzzene Show Abstract The tuned mass damper TMD is a simple and efficient device, but it is only effective when it is precisely tuned to the frequency of a particular vibration mode. In order to overcome this limitation, the nonlinear energy pumping phenomenon from a main mechanical structure to a local, passive nonlinear energy sink NES is investigated. However, in addition to the rattle space requirements, the mechanical implementation of the nonlinear absorber poses serious challenges.
This is why piezoelectric shunting is considered in this study. Specifically, the objective of the paper consists in developing a suitable association of piezoelectric patches and nonlinear shunted electrical circuits so that the effects of the NES would be electrically reproduced. Ghasemi-Nejhad Show Abstract This research focuses on a finite element analysis of active vibration suppression capabilities of a smart composite platform, which is a structural interface between a satellite main thruster and its structure and possesses simultaneous precision positioning and vibration suppression capabilities for thrust vector control of a satellite.
First, the combined system of the smart composite platform and the satellite structure are briefly described followed by the finite element modeling and simulations. The smart platform piezoelectric patches and stacks material properties modeling, for the finite element analysis, are developed consistent with the manufacturer data.
Next, a vibration suppression scheme, based on the modal analysis, is presented and used in vibration suppression analysis of satellite structures of the thrust vector under the thruster-firing excitation. The approach introduced here is an effective technique for the design of smart structures with complex geometry to study their MIMO active vibration suppression capabilities. Dong ; J. Tang Show Abstract Actuators with high linear motion speed, high positioning resolution and long motion stroke are needed in many precision machining systems.
In some current systems, voice coil motors VCMs are implemented for servo control. While the voice coil motors may provide long motion stroke needed in many applications, the main obstacle that hinders the improvement of the machining accuracy and efficiency is its limited bandwidth.

This last point may cause a bit of confusion. Fig 3: inverting amplifier Refer to Fig 3 for a detailed explanation. The right end of Ri is at virtual ground, so all of the input voltage drops across it, creating Iin, the input current.
This current cannot enter the operational amplifier and instead will pass through Rf. Because a positive signal is presented to the inverting input, the op-amp will sink output current, thus drawing Iin through Rf. The resulting voltage drop across Rf is the same magnitude as the load voltage. This is true because Rf is effectively in parallel with the load.
There is a change in polarity because we reference the output signal to the ground. In short, Vout is the voltage across Rf, inverted. Substitution yields, Again, we see that the voltage gain is set by resistor ratio. Again, there is an allowable range of values. Summing Amplifiers Fig: Summing Amplifiers The most common form of summing amplifier is really nothing more than an extension of the inverting voltage amplifier. Because the input to the op-amp is at virtual ground, it makes an ideal current summing node.
Instead of placing a single input resistor at this point, several input resistors may be used. Each input source drives its own resistor, and there is very little effect from neighboring inputs. The virtual ground is the key. A general summing amplifier is shown in Fig above. In general, then for channel N, we have The output signal is the sum of all inputs multiplied by their associated gains.
This is referred to as an equal-weighted configuration. As in the voltage-to-current transducer, the load is floating. The basic circuit is shown in Figure. Due to the parallel negative feedback connection at the input, the circuit input impedance is assumed to be zero. This means that the input point is at the virtual ground.
The current into the op-amp is negligible, so all input current flows through Ri to node A. The gain of the inverting amplifiers is high. The other terminal that is non-inverting is connected to the ground. As the gain is high for these kinds of amplifiers small values of the input voltage or signal is enough to generate the maximum value at the output. What is Inverting Amplifier? The value of the input applied at inverting terminal where the non-inverting terminal is connected to the ground or the zero potential.
The output generated is again feedback to the inverting terminal. This type of amplifier is defined as the inverting amplifier. This feedback condition of the amplifiers makes the gain factor high. Inverting Amplifier Op-Amp Generally, a basic operational amplifier consists of two input terminals in which one acts as an inverting terminal and the other is a non-inverting one.
Only one terminal is present at the output side. In case of the inverting amplifiers, the non-inverting terminal is connected to the ground. But the potential maintained is the same at both the terminals. The output signal generated requires a minimum value of the input to be applied. This type of amplifier possesses the maximum gain value because the output that is generated is again applied to the inverting terminal through a feedback resistor. It is only because of the feedback resistor we get an amplified signal.
If there is no feedback resistor then op-amp would try to maintain the voltage level at the inverting input terminal same as the non-inverting terminal which is ground. In that scenario the output voltage would be same as the input as there is no difference between the input voltages. The feedback resistor plays a important role for an operational amplifier to function as an inverting amplifier or an non-inverting amplifier. At the input inverting terminal is supplied with the voltage signal through the input resistor connected to it.
The non-inverting terminal concerning the circuit is connected to the ground. The output terminal is again connected to the input inverting terminal through the feedback resistor. If the op-amp is considered to be ideal in such cases the gain of the circuit will be at its peak.
However, the negative feedback is followed by the amplifier makes the gain factor high. Inverting Amplifier Circuit Diagram The output signal that is generated due to this amplifier is that will be of angle degrees out-of-phase in comparison to the applied input signal. The voltage that is applied at the inverting terminal its potential value will be the same as that of the potential at the non-inverting terminal.
The behavior of this amplifier resembles the differential amplifier. Inverting Amplifier Gain The gain of the inverting amplifier can be given as the ratio of the output voltage to the applied input voltage. That is the ratio of the feedback resistor to the resistor present at the input terminal determines the gain value. As it is an inverting amplifier the gain is represented by the negative sign.

These rules used in relation to the ideal op-amp can be used to make the operation of the two main voltage amplifier circuits easier to understand. The small differences between ideal and practical op-amps can be temporarily ignored. By applying the two rules to the ideal op-amp shown in Fig A, it can be assumed that: Pin 3 is at 0V, as it is connected to the ground, so pin 2 will also be at 0V Rule 1 Therefore Rin and Rf are effectively connected in series between Vin and Vout with pin 2 between the two resistors held at 0V No current can flow into pin 2 Rule 2 so the current flowing into Vin cannot be flowing into the op-amp, therefore it must be flowing through Rf The diagram in Fig B shows that in effect Rin and Rf are two resistors connected in series between Vin and Vin with Pin 2 at 0V.
Any input current Iin therefore flows directly from the input, via Rin and Rf to the output, with Rin and Rf forming a potential divider between the opposite polarity voltages Vin and Vout with pin 2 at 0V. The current through a series resistor circuit is the same for each resistor, so the input voltage Vin will be proportional to the resistance of Rin, and the voltage across Rf will be proportional to the resistance of Rf Fig A Fig B: Virtual Ground Inverting Voltage Amplifier The inverting amplifier is based on the PP negative feedback model.
The base form is shown in Fig 1. By itself, this form is current sensing, not voltage sensing. In order to achieve voltage sensing, an input resistor, Ri, is added. See Fig2. Fig 1: A Basic parallel-parallel Amplifier Fig 2 This means that the inverting input is at a virtual ground. The signal here is so small that it is negligible. Because of this, we may also say that the impedance seen looking into this point is zero.
This last point may cause a bit of confusion. Fig 3: inverting amplifier Refer to Fig 3 for a detailed explanation. The right end of Ri is at virtual ground, so all of the input voltage drops across it, creating Iin, the input current.

That means if the applied input voltage is positive the generated output will be negative and vice-versa. Inverting Amplifier Wave forms Advantages and Disadvantages of Inverting Amplifier The advantages of the inverting amplifier are as follows It follows the negative feedback. The gain factor of these amplifiers is very high. The output generated will be out of phase with the applied input signal.
The potential values at both the inverting and the non-inverting terminals maintained at zero. The disadvantages of the inverting amplifier are as follows The gain is high but the feedback that is followed must be maintained to be distortion less. The applied input signal should not contain the noise because small value applied will be multiplied and obtained at the output. Applications : This amplifier is advantageous because it follows the feedback called negative.
Because of these reasons among the other operational amplifiers, it possesses the high gain value. Even it maintains the same potential of voltage at both the terminals. This makes the this amplifier to be utilized in many fields.
