Abstract

The requirements for the actuator material for adaptive structures are (1) large stroke, (2) quick response, (3) energy saving and (4) reliability/durability. Especially in space applications, mechanical vibration suppression is occasionally required, and remote control/ drive of the actuator is another key technology. This paper describes recent developments of piezoelectric and related ceramic actuators for adaptive structures.
