Dynamics of a cantilever beam with piezoelectric sensor: Parameter identification
Cimrman, Robert ; Kolman, Radek ; Musil, Ladislav ; Kotek, Vojtěch ; Kylar, Jaromír
The piezoelectric materials are electroactive materials often applied for real-time sensing or structural health monitoring, both important research topics in dynamics. Mathematical models of such structures have to allow also for the external electrical circuits and contain several material parameters that need to be identified from experiments. We present a model of a simple experiment involving dynamics of a cantilever beam with an attached piezoelectric sensor excited by a suddenly removed weight. The external circuit can be taken into account as having either a finite or infinite resistance. We also outline the parameter identification procedure based on automatic differentiation and present the experimental and numerical results.
Dynamics of a cantilever beam with piezoelectric sensor: Experimental study

Online and real-time sensing and monitoring of the health state of complex structures, such as air-craft and critical parts of power stations, is an essential part of the research in dynamics. Several types of sensors are used for sensing dynamic responses and monitoring response changes during the operation of critical parts of complex systems. The piezoelectric (PZ) materials belong to one group of electroactive materials, which transform mechanical deformation into an electrical response. For example, PZ ceramics or PVDF foils are employed for online sensing of the time history of mechanical deformation. Experimentally obtained response of a cantilever beam structure with a glued PZ sensor is the case of interest in this contribution. During the transient problem of the beam loaded by suddenly interrupted load due to the weight of a mass at the end of the beam, the time history of normal velocity at a point on the beam surface has been measured by a laser vibrometer and parallely, the output voltage on the PZ sensor has been measured by an electric device. The experimental data in the case of the first eigen-frequency is in good agreement with the value given by the formulae from the theoretical modeling of free vibration of a linear beam.
Dynamics of a cantilever beam with piezoelectric sensor: Finite element modeling
Cimrman, Robert ; Kolman, Radek ; Musil, Ladislav ; Kotek, Vojtěch ; Kylar, Jaromír
An elastodynamical model of a cantilever beam coupled with a piezoelectric sensor is introduced and its discretization using the finite element method is presented. The mathematical model includes additional terms that enforce the floating potential boundary condition for keeping a constant charge on an electrode of the sensor. The behaviour of the model is illustrated using a numerical example corresponding to an experimental setup, where vibrations of the beam and the potential on the sensor are measured.
