Green's function for a composite piezoceramic wedge in the case of antiplane deformation

We consider a piecewise-homogeneous ceramic wedge made of two homogeneous wedges of different nature continuously fastened together along their common face. We construct the Green's function of the corresponding boundary-value problem of electroplasticity and discover oscillations of stresses, electric intensity, and induction at the tip of the wedge absent in the case of antiplane deformation of a piezopassive composite wedge.
