The study to reduce noise and vibration in aircraft cabin through PZT was implemented, using a semi-monocoque structure, 1.5m in diameter and 3.0m long with 2.3mm skin, which stimulates an aircraft body. We utilized PZT of 480 pieces bonded on inner surface of the structure as sensor and actuator. We applied random noise of low frequency range between 0~500Hz to the test model. We tried to reduce the vibration level of structure and internal air due to the external load by controlling the PZTs. Two control methods, gain control and feed-forward control, were tried. We measured internal sound pressure on 150 spots and compared overall values of sound pressure with gain control to them without control and evaluated its reduction capability. The tests showed 4.0dB O.A. reduction at maximum in gain control and 3.5dB O.A. reduction at maximum in feed forward control.
