On the Derivation of Electric Body Force, Couple and Power in an Electroelastic Body

  • Jiashi Yang


This paper presents a procedure for the derivation of the expressions for electric body force, couple, and power in a nonlinear electroelastic body under electromechanical loads. The derivation is based on Tierseten’s two-continuum model but much simplified.
