Effect of Input Electric Field on Fatigue Degradation of Piezoelectric Fibre Bridging Force
Based on our previous model on piezoelectric fibre pullout, the effects of electric input and piezoelectric parameters on the fatigue degradation on piezoelectric fibre bridging force are discussed. Numerical results indicate that an electric field can promote or impede the degradation, depending on its direction. It is also shown that piezoelectric parameters play important roles on the degradation. Also, comparisons between the effects of electric load and piezoelectric parameters on fatigue degradation of pullout force and those on pullout force obtained in previous work are carried out.
