This paper first points out the retaining higher order terms in the main equation of previous study (PS) of Friswell et al. (Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures 23(13): 1505-1521, 2012). The equations of motion for the system are derived following energy (Lagrange) based approaches and the correct equation with the extra higher order terms is provided and simulations are redone in the current study (CS).
