Lateral Stress Effect on Fracture Quantities of a Crack in a Piezoelectric Medium
The aim of this paper is to seek the solution to the electromechanical field equations for a cracked linear piezoelectric body using an analytical approach which is based on the decomposition theorem of linear algebra. The electroelastic fields around the crack tip are given. The energy release rate is written in terms of those fields intensity factors.
