Abstract
In this report, the mathematical models for an active vibration damping experiment are developed. The vibration and interaction equations for a cantilever beam with bonded piezoelectric films are derived. It is shown that such an apparatus is ideal for empirically verifying and extending the control methods described in the current active damping literature. The piezoelectric films can be used as either force actuators or strain sensors. Static and dynamic interaction equations are developed for both single and paired piezoelectric films, that are either rectangular or shaped.
