In this chapter, some static solutions to the equations of linear piezoelectricity are presented. A few simple deformations useful in piezoelectric devices are discussed. The concept of electromechanical coupling factor is introduced. In Particular, Sects. 3.3, 3.4, 3.8, 3.9, 3.10, 3.11, 3.12, and 3.13 are on antiplane deformations of polarized ceramics .
