Resonant RL shunt circuits represent a robust and effective approach to piezoelectric damping, provided that the individual shunt circuit components are calibrated accurately with respect to the dynamic properties of the corresponding flexible structure. The balanced calibration procedure applied in the present analysis is based on equal damping of the two modes associated with the resonant vibration form of the structure. An important result of the presented calibration procedure is the explicit inclusion of a quasi-static contribution from the non-resonant vibration modes of the structure via a single background flexibility parameter. This leads to explicit calibration expressions for the shunt circuit components and it is demonstrated by a simple numerical example that the procedure with correction for background flexibility leads to both equal damping of the two modes and effective response reduction.
