Abstract
A smart structures system based on the fiber optic sensors and ER fluids actuators have been developed to used active vibration control in this paper. There are many advantages of this optical sensor such as high accurate, simple construction and low cost. A method of sensing vibration using the detection of changes in the spatial distribution of energy in the output of a multi-mode optic fiber has been demonstrated. A multi-mode optical fiber whose diameter is 200/230 micrometers is used in the present experiment. A multi- mode optical fiber vibration sensor based on the detection of the spatial speckle has been made. The experimental test have been finished. It has been found that this fiber optic sensor has higher sensitivity and better dynamic and static properties. At the meantime, the electrorheological (ER) fluids have been used as actuator to vibration control because of it's fast strong reversible change of the rheological properties under external electric field. A smart composite beam embedded ER fluids and fiber optic vibration sensor have been made in this paper. Finally, the experiment of structural vibration active control of smart structure incorporating the ER fluids and fiber optic vibration sensor have been finished.
