Shape control of a nonlinear smart plate
We study dynamic deformations of a neo-Hookean composite plate with PZT sensors and actuators bonded to its top and bottom surfaces. The constitutive relation for the PZT is taken to be linear in the Green-Lagrange strain tensor but quadratic in the driving voltage. It is shown that a simple feedback algorithm suffices to control the deformations of the plate.
