Original Papers


The present paper deals with a thermoelastic problem in an isotropic structural plate to which a piezoelectric ceramic plate of crystal class 6mm is perfectly bonded. It is assumed that the combined plate is subjected to a thermal load and then is deformed. In this case, we try to control the deformation of the isotropic structural plate by applying an electric potential to the piezoelectric ceramic plate. By analyzing the piezothermoelastic problem in the combined plate, we obtain an appropriate applied electric potential which alters the isotropic structural plate to a prescribed deformation. Finally numerical calculations are carried out for an isotropic steel plate to which a cadmium selenide plate is perfectly bonded, and the results are illustrated graphically.
