Time‐harmonic analysis of cracks in functionally graded piezoelectric materials

Time‐harmonic analysis of cracks in functionally graded piezoelectric materials Modern piezoelectric structures offer certain performance advantages over conventional ones due to their capability of converting electrical energy into mechanical energy and vice versa.

Abstract

Modern piezoelectric structures offer certain performance advantages over conventional ones due to their capability of converting electrical energy into mechanical energy and vice versa. In recent years composites with a continuously change of the material properties are getting increasing attention in advanced engineering applications. An important advantage over conventional laminates is that interfaces and stress discontinuities are avoided. Piezoelectric composites are very brittle and have a low fracture toughness. The analysis of functionally graded materials (FGMs) is mathematically complex and analytical solutions are possible only for very simple geometry and loading conditions. Therefore, efficient numerical methods are needed to solve more general problems. (© 2017 Wiley‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
