Elasticity Solution of Laminated Cylindrical Shell with Piezoelectric Layer under Local Ring Load


Article Preview

Elasticity solution is presented for simply-supported, orthotropic, piezoelectric cylindrical shell with finite length under local ring load in the middle of shell and electrostatic excitation. The highly coupled partial differential equations (p.d.e.) are reduced to ordinary differential equations(o.d.e.) with variable coefficients by means of trigonometric function expansion in longitudinal direction for displacement and external forces. The resulting ordinary differential equations are solved by Galerkin finite element method. Numerical examples are presented for [0/90/P] lamination with sensor and actuator for different thicknesses.
