    Abstract Piezoelectric actuators based motion-producing devices are widely used in precision machining, deformable mirrors, micropumps and piezoelectric injection systems. However, because of their hysteresis nonlinear property, the piezoelectric actuators can not provide absolutely precise displacements. To solve this problem, researchers applied inverse control method to compensate the nonlinearity of piezoelectric actuators, and the inverse models are mainly based on traditional hysteresis models such as the Preiasch model or Prandtl-Ishlinskii model. In this paper, a new approach for inverse control of piezoelectric actuators is presented. The new method utilize a modified Prandtl-Ishlinskii model which is based on a combination of two asymmetric… More >


    Frequency Shift Curve Based Damage Detection Method for Beam Structures

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 19-36, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.026.019
    Abstract Vibration based damage detection methods play an important role in the maintenance of beam structures such as bridges. However, most of them require the accurate measurement of structural mode shapes, which may not be easily satisfied in practice. Since the measurement of frequencies is more accurate than that of mode shapes, this paper proposes a frequency shift curve (FSC) method, based on the equivalence between the FSC due to auxiliary mass and the mode shape square, which has been demonstrated to be effective in structural damage detection. Two damage indices based on the FSC are developed, which are called the… More >

    Abstract Lamb wave tomography (LWT) is a potential and efficient technique for non-destructive tomographic reconstruction of damage images in structural components or materials. A new two-stage inverse algorithm with a small amount of scanning data for quickly reconstructing damage images in aluminum and CFRP laminated plates was proposed in this paper. Due to its high sensitivity to damages, the amplitude decrease of transmitted Lamb waves after travelling through the inspected region was employed as a key signal parameter related to the attenuation of Lamb waves in propagation routes. A through-thickness circular hole and a through-thickness elliptical hole in two aluminum plates,… More >


    Impact Force Identification of CFRP Structures Using Experimental Transfer Matrices

    S. Atobe1, H. Fukunaga1, N. Hu2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 67-90, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.026.067
    Abstract This paper presents a method for identifying the location and force history of an impact force acting on CFRP structures such as laminated plates and stiffened panels. The identification method is an experimental one without using any analytical model of the structure. Here, experimental transfer matrices, which relate the impact force to the corresponding responses of PZT sensors, are used to identify the impact force. The transfer matrices are preliminarily constructed from the measured data obtained by impact tests with an impulse hammer. To identify the impact location, the arrival times of the flexural waves to the PZT sensors are… More >
