An analytical method is proposed for selecting the best suited actuator which can preferably be used in a variety of structural control applications. The selection is based on matching performance characteristics of the actuator, such as force and displacement, to the requirements of the given task. Relations between the mid surface strains and the strain induced in piezoelectric actuator due to application of electric field are derived to optimize the thickness of piezoelectric layer.
