Piezoelectric shells

  • Khanh Chau Le


Let \(B\) denote a domain in the three-dimensional Euclidean space ε, which can be obtained from \(S\), a two-dimensional smooth surface bounded by a smooth closed curve \(S\), and from the segments of length h in the direction perpendicular to the surface, by the method described in Section 3.1. A linear piezoelectric body occupying the domain \(B\) in its stress-free undeformed state is called a piezoelectric shell, the surface \(S\) its middle surface, and h its thickness. The shell is said to be thin if h is much smaller than the characteristic sizes as well as the radius of curvature of the middle surface.
