Abstract
Undesired vibration may occur in lightweight structures due to excitation and low damping. For the purpose of lateral vibration attenuation in beam structures, piezoelectric transducers shunted to negative capacitances can be an appropriate measure. In this paper, a new concept for lateral vibration attenuation by integrated piezoelectric stack transducers in the elastic support of a beam with circular cross-section is presented. In the piezoelastic support, bending of the beam in an arbitrary direction is transformed into a significant axial deformation of three stack transducers and, thus, the beam's surface may remain free from transducers. For multimodal vibration attenuation, each piezoelectric transducer is shunted to a negative capacitance. It is shown by numerical simulation and experiment that the concept of an elastic beam support with integrated shunted piezoelectric stack transducers is capable of reducing the lateral vibration of the beam in an arbitrary direction.
