Dynamic Response of Multiple Coplanar Interface Cracks between Two Dissimilar Piezoelectric Materials
The linear piezoelectricity theory is applied to investigate the dynamic response of coplanar interface cracks between two dissimilar piezoelectric materials subjected to the mechanical and electrical impacts. The number of cracks is arbitrary, and the interface cracks are assumed to be permeable for electric field. Integral transforms and dislocation density function are employed to reduce the problem to Cauchy singular integral equations. Numerical examples are given to show the effects of crack relative position and material property parameters on the variations of dynamic energy release rate.
