Continuum modelling of piezoelectromechanical truss beams: an application to vibration damping

Abstract : We call piezoelectromechanical (PEM) truss beam a truss modular beam coupled with a transmission electrical line when the coupling is obtained by piezoelectric actuators which act as bars in the module and as capacitances in the electrical line. The truss module length is assumed negligible with respect to the considered wave lengths. The transmission electrical line is assumed continuously distributed along the truss beam. Applying the method of virtual power as expounded in [2] we formulate a continuum model for PEM truss beams and we prove that there exists a critical value for the transmission electrical impedance in the neighborhood of which the electromechanical modal coupling is maximum and the possible electrical dissipation of mechanical energy is relevant.
