One major problem in magnetic resonance image equipment is the high-level noise borne by the vibration of the cylindrical shell to support coils for gradient magnetic fields. The vibration of the shell is excited by the Lorentz force between the pulse current applied to the coils and the main magnetic field. In order to suppress the noise inside the cylindrical shell, it is aimed to control the vibration of the shell. In this paper, simulation is carried out on the vibration control of the shell by using distributed piezoelectric actuators. The actuators produce bending moment or in-plane force when pulse voltages are applied synchronously with the pulse current of the coils. Coupling of actuators and vibration modes, and parameter optimization are also discussed. The simulation results show that the vibration level is successfully reduced in the frequency range of 400 approximately 1200 Hz.
