Abstract
Piezoelectric wafer active sensors (PWAS) have been used as actuators in structural health monitoring system of beams, plates, and truss elements. This paper presents a shear lag solution for the transfer of stress and strain between a structurally attached piezoelectric wafer active sensor and the support structure. We will derive a shear lag solution not limited to the low frequency approximation, i.e., a generic solution. Both the low frequency approximation and the generic solution will be applied to the computation of PWAS-structure tuning curves.
