Active Vibration Suppression with Smart Materials


M. Ruh

Semester/Bachelor Thesis, WS 03/04

Smart materials (Adaptive Werkstoffe) have long been heralded as the dawn of a new era in the construction of new structures that have to meet ever more demanding performance requirements. The vast potential of smart structures has stimulated the scientific and engineering community in the development of new products and systems for applications in automotive, aircraft, space-based structures, earthquake resistant building, and industrial machinery. In this project, we will consider active-passive vibration control using electronically shunted electromechanical transducers. The shunts are designed using a control design technique and are then implemented in electronic circuitry. The designed smart materials will be conducted and validated in the EMPA Dübendorf/Dep. Acoustics, the Swiss Federal Laboratory for Materials Testing and Research. As this project covers many different areas like control, mechanical and electrical engineering as well as testing and validation, the student should have interests to work in an interdisciplinary field.
