Plane Electromechanical Fieldes in a Piezoelectric Material with a Crack


Article Preview

A two-dimensional electromechanical analysis is performed on a transversely isotropic piezoelectric material containing a crack based on the impermeable electric boundary condition. By introducing stress function, a general solution is provided in terms of triangle series. It is shown that the stress and electric displacement are all of 1/2 order singularity in front of the crack tip. In addition, the electromechanical fields in the vicinity of the crack when subjected to uniform tensile mechanical load are obtained using boundary collocation method.
