This article deals with the active structural-acoustic control of composite truncated circular conical shells using active constrained layer damping (ACLD) treatment. The constraining layer of the ACLD treatment is made of vertically/obliquely reinforced 1–3 piezoelectric composite (PZC) material. A finite element model of smart laminated truncated conical shells backed by the acoustic cavity and integrated with the patches of such ACLD treatment has been developed to demonstrate the performance of these patches for active structural-acoustic control of symmetric and antisymmetric cross-ply and antisymmetric angle-ply truncated conical laminated shells. Both velocity and pressure rate feedback control laws have been implemented to activate the patches. Particular emphasis has also been placed on investigating the effect of variation of piezoelectric fiber orientation angle in the constraining layer on the performance of the patches.
