Relatore: Prof. Dr. Ing. Tamara Nestorović (Ruhr-Universität Bochum)

In this talk several approaches in the overall design of smart structures and systems will be addressed, with the focus on active vibration control of systems with integrated piezoelectric materials used as actuators and sensors. In the overall design chain (including design, optimization, simulation, control, experimental validation and testing), the advanced control design will be addressed in detail along with actuator/sensor model-based placement optimization. Implementation will be documented by some benchmark examples from the laboratory of the research group Mechanics of Adaptive Systems Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Furthermore, some structural health monitoring approaches based on wave propagation will be also addressed.
