In recent years, smart structures with piezoelectric sensors and actuators have attracted serious attention for they can sense and alter the mechanical response during in-service operation. On the other hand, light-weight shell type structures may be one of the most popularly used structures in space vehicles. For this reason, shell type smart structures have become the focus of study for many researchers. Tzou and his coworkers [1, 2, 3] studied piezoelectric shell type continua using finite element method and analytical analysis method. Chen and Shen[4, 5] performed the study of exact studies of piezoelectric circular cylindrical shells and piezothermoelastic shells, also, they studied the stability of piezoelectric circular cylindrical shells[6].
