TEQIP Sponsored Course on Active/ Passive Damping Composites at IIT Guwahati [Jan 6-10, 2020]: Register by Dec 29

By: Jasmeet | 06 Nov 2019 1:30 PM

This course aims to provide an overview of the available active/passive damping techniques for structural vibration control starting from the historical background to the advanced methodologies. The advanced technologies in the utilization of active and/or passive damping materials involve the mechanics-based design of piezoelectric and viscoelastic composites.

Therefore, an overview of active, passive and active-passive damping mechanisms in the recent active and passive damping composites will also be provided. Additionally, the mathematical modeling of the recent active and/or passive damping treatments will be discussed for a variety of structures. A special focus is laid on the micromechanics of composites especially for analytical and numerical homogenization of piezoelectric and viscoelastic composites.

  • Passive damping techniques for structural vibration control
  • Viscoelastic damping composites
  • Smart materials, smart structures, active control of structural vibration
  • Piezoelectric composite actuators
  • Active-passive hybrid damping techniques in structural vibration control
  • Analytical and numerical homogenization of piezoelectric and viscoelastic composites
  • Optimization techniques for multimodal active/passive vibration control
