In this study we investigated the dynamical behavior of aircraft wings and using piezoelectric actuation we implemented active vibration control. The aircraft wing is modeled as a thin-walled composite beam having a cross section of diamond shaped. The dynamic response of the beam under varying proportional and velocity feedback gain parameters is obtained and shown to be enhanced with optimal control procedure, minimizing the control effort and response.
