Stress Distribution in a Piezoelectric Material with an Elliptical Hole Subjected to Remote Uniform Shear Mechanical and Electric Loads
A two-dimensional electro-elastic analysis is performed on a transversely isotropic piezoelectric material with an elliptical hole, which is subjected to remote uniform shear forces, and remote electric field. Based on the impermeable electric boundary conditions, close form solutions are obtained by using the complex potentials method. Taking PZT-4 ceramic into consideration, the stress distributions around the neighborhood of the elliptical hole are given. It is shown that the hole geometry and the electric field are responsible for the shielding effect, there are sharp stress concentration near the hole.
