Double-Layered Piezothermoelastic Hollow Cylinder under Thermal Loading


Article Preview

In the present paper, a long thick-walled piezothermoelastic hollow cylinder under a symmetric thermal loading is studied. Based on the theory of elasticity, the mechanical and electrical as well as the thermal fields of the cylinder are obtained. Besides, the effects of both temperature change and the material difference between two layers on the mechanical responses and electric output of the cylinder are investigated in detail. For comparison, some discussions of numerical results are addressed at the end of this paper.
