Abstract
The objective of this paper is to describe the development of an analytical closed form solution to model a composite adaptive plate with embedded or bonded piezoelectric actuators and sensors. The mathematical model which describes the electromechanical coupling, the equations of motion and the boundary conditions is based on the Mindlin displacement field and on the Hamilton principle. The electromechanical coupling is a consequence of the piezoelectric characteristics of the actuator and sensor materials. This mathematical modelling technique for distributed actuators and sensors embedded in a composite adaptive plate is based on the Heaviside function.
