Based on the first order shear deformation plate theory, a numerical analysis model of composite laminated plates with distributed PZT actuators under thermal load was established, and the corresponding formulae of finite element method were present considering the effect of adhesive layer between PZT actuator and plate. Considering a two ends simply supported plate, the thermal deformation of the plates induced by different temperatures on the upper and lower surfaces and the thermal deformation compensation for the plates using PZT actuators were studied respectively, then the optimization of voltages applied to each actuator was discussed.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
