Abstract
One of the critical issues in embedding smart patches (i.e., integrated sensors, actuators, electronics, and control) in smart structures is power delivery and communications to and from the patches. In this paper, design and experimentation of microstrip antenna elements and arrays integrated with piezoelectric substrates for novel wireless communication in smart structures are presented. Furthermore, we will discuss the general concept, analysis and design of microstrip antennas in a multilayered dielectric-piezoelectric environment, experimental demonstration of remote sensing and actuation mechanism, and address important considerations and potential practical applications.
