In this paper we present a model for a rubber plate with piezoceramic actuators to represent a bioinspired flexible wing. Using a Galerkin based finite element approximation to the system, we compute a linear quadratic based tracking control for piezoelectric actuators placed along both leading and trailing edges. Using these piezoceramic devices, we demonstrate the effectiveness of model based feedback control in achieving a desired wing tip position; this modified shape is analogous to aircraft roll moment generation via wing twist.
