Deformations of Piezothermoelastic Laminates with Internal Electrodes Academic Article uri icon


  • Deformations of multi-electroded laminates under thermoelectromechanical loads are studied. An asymptotic formulation is derived to reduce the three-dimensional problem to a hierarchy of two-dimensional equations and is examined by comparing the present results with an exact solution. New results are given by using the asymptotic scheme for ceramic multilayer actuators with interdigital electrodes.
