Nonuniform surface deformation of piezoelectric composites and effect of surface plates

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A theoretical model is presented for the piezoelectric ceramic-polymer composites with 2-2 connectivity. Based on a simple assumption, analytical solutions can be obtained for the inhomogeneous surface displacement profile. The theory is extended to address the case of adding surface plates to the composite. Variations of the surface profiles with the change of ceramic aspect ratio, spacing of ceramic, Young's modulus of the polymer and the thickness of surface plates are also calculated.
