Dynamic behavior of piezoelectric bimorph beams with a delamination zone
Zemirline, Adel; Ouali, Mohammed; Mahieddine, Ali;
The First Order Shear Deformation Theory (FOSDT) is considered to study the dynamic behavior of a bimorph beam. A delamination zone between the upper and the lower layer has been taken into consideration; the beam is discretised using the finite elements method (FEM). Several parameters are taken into consideration like structural damping, the geometry, the load nature and the configurations of the boundary conditions. Results show that the delamination between the upper and the lower layer affects considerably the actuation.
