Piezoelectric materials can be called“the top of the crop” of smart materials. Piezoelectric materials have emerged as the most researched materials for practical applications among the numerous smart materials. They owe it to a few main reasons, including low cost, high bandwidth of service, availability in a variety of formats, and ease of handling and execution. Several authors have used piezoelectric materials as sensors and actuators to effectively control structural vibrations, noise, and active control, as well as for structural health monitoring, over the last three decades. These studies cover a wide range of engineering disciplines, from vast space systems to aerospace, automotive, civil, and biomedical engineering.
2. Structural Health Monitoring
The procedure of control and repair used to preserve the structural integrity of damaged components is distinctive. It is established on the converse piezoelectric effect, in which the local moment and force induced in the piezoelectric materials by an applied electric field would make it easier for the structure to prevent the development of high stress and strain levels because of external load and thus lessens the criticality of the damage.
Structural health monitoring is also proving highly significant in avoiding the premature collapse of structures based on aerospace and civil industries such as offshore platforms, houses, bridges, and underground structures.
