Summary In the present study, fuzzy control of vibration of a hybrid smart composite beam actuated by electro-rheological fluids (ERF) and piezoceramics actuators is investigated. A carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) cantilevered beam containing ERF with bonded piezoceramics is prepared and vibrated forcibly with sinusoidal external excitation. Fuzzy model of controlled element containing two actuators is formed in consideration of intense nonlinearity in ERF actuator. Parameters of membership functions and linear equations of fuzzy inference system in Sugeno style are identified by using a hybrid neuro-fuzzy system. Fuzzy controller for vibration control of the composite beam is designed based on the fuzzy model by using the modern control theory. The effect of vibration control system with a fuzzy controller is verified by simulation and experiment.
Keywords vibration, composite laminates, piezo-ceramic actuators, ER fluids, fuzzy control, nonlinearity, fuzzy model, system identification.
