Basics of FGM and FGPM

  • Pankaj Sharma
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


To model the functionally graded piezoelectric material (FGPM), the theoretical concepts of piezoelectric material and functionally graded material (FGM) both are needed. The basic introduction of piezoelectric material along with the fundamentals of FGM is needed before carrying out the study of FGPM. This chapter deals with the introduction of FGM and the concept of FGPM.
