	%X This article presents a method of using the one
dimensional piezo-electric patch on beam model for structural
identification. A hybrid element constituted of one dimensional
beam element and a PZT sensor is used with reduced material
properties. This model is convenient and simple for identification
of beams. Accuracy of this element is first verified against a
corresponding 3D finite element model (FEM). The structural
identification is carried out as an inverse problem whereby
parameters are identified by minimizing the deviation between
the predicted and measured voltage response of the patch, when
subjected to excitation. A non-classical optimization algorithm
Particle Swarm Optimization is used to minimize this objective
function. The signals are polluted with 5% Gaussian noise to
simulate experimental noise. The proposed method is applied on
beam structure and identified parameters are stiffness and damping.
The model is also validated experimentally.
