Nonlinear Dynamic FE Simulation of Smart Piezolaminated Structures Based on First- and Third-Order Transverse Shear Deformation Theory
This paper deals with nonlinear finite element analysis of smart structures with integrated piezoelectric layers. Two geometrically nonlinear finite plate elements incorporating piezoelectric layers are applied based either on first- or third-order transverse shear deformation theory. Nonlinear strain-displacement relations are used that are valid for small strains and moderate rotations. Numerical tests are performed for the time histories of the tip displacement and sensor output voltage of a thin beam with a piezoelectric patch bonded to the surface.
