Saint-Venant Decay Problems in Piezoelectricity
As an application of the symplectic mechanics described in the previous chapter, Saint-Venant decay analysis of piezoelectric strips is presented in this chapter. Applications of state space approach to the Saint-Venant decay problem of piezoelectric laminates are also discussed. Particularly, a mixed-variable state space model for dissimilar piezoelectric laminates and multilayered graded piezoelectric materials is described. Further formulations for decay analysis of piezoelectric-piezomagnetic sandwich structures are discussed.
