Download E-books Piezoelectric Shells: Distributed Sensing and Control of Continua (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications) PDF

Exploiting new complicated constructions and electromechanical platforms, e. g. , adaptive buildings, high-precision platforms, micro electromechanical structures, dispensed sensors/actuators, precision manipulation and controls, and so forth. , has been changing into one of many mainstream learn and improvement actions (structure & movement) lately. those new platforms and units might carry a brand new technological revolution in sleek industries and additional, without delay or in some way, impression human lifestyles. within the look for and examine in cutting edge applied sciences, it truly is proved that piezoelectric fabrics are very flexible in either sensor and actuator purposes. hence, piezoelectric know-how has been commonly utilized to a great number of commercial functions and units, various from thin-film micro sensors/actuators to massive area buildings as well as these fairly traditional functions, e. g. , sensors, actuators, hydrophones, precision manipulators, cellular robots, micro cars, and so forth. there were a number of books on piezoelectricity released some time past; notwithstanding, a unified presentation of piezoelectric shells and disbursed senSing/control functions remains to be missing. This ebook is meant to fill the distance and to pro~de practicing engineers and researchers with an advent to complex piezoelectric shell theories and allotted sensor/actuator applied sciences in structural id and keep watch over. This ebook represents a set of the author's fresh examine and improvement on piezoelectric shells and similar functions to dispensed dimension and keep watch over of continuaj it displays six best-paper awards, together with [ xviii] • Contents. ASME Best-Paper Awards lately.
