1 January 1992 Optical fiber sensors for active structural acoustic control
Author Affiliations +
We present the first demonstration of active acoustic control using optical fiber sensors. The fiber sensors are oriented symmetrically about the vertical centerline of a thin, simply supported baffle plate and are configured for the most effective detection of the odd-odd plate modes. The output from the fiber sensor is used as an error signal, a least-mean-square algorithm is used for digital processing, and control is achieved using a single piezoelectric actuator. Preliminary results obtained from the use of elliptical-core, two-mode fiber sensors attached to the plate show effective acoustic attenuation of 25 dB in on-resonance cases and 10 dB in off-resonance cases.
