A hierarchy of dynamic plate equations is derived for an orthotropic elastic plate. Using power series expansions in the thickness coordinate for the displacement components, recursion relations are obtained among the expansion functions. Using these in the boundary conditions on the plate surfaces, a set of dynamic equations are derived. These can be(More)
The possibility of applying spring boundary conditions to model propagation of elastic waves in layered composites with nonperfect contact between layers in studied. The stiffnesses in the spring boundary conditions are determined by the crack density, the effective size of microdefects, and the elastic properties of the materials via the Baik-Thompson and(More)
A piezoelectric strip of finite width and thickness is placed on top of an isotropic elastic half space. It operates in actuator mode, and a time harmonic voltage is thus applied across it. The piezoelectric material is of type 6 mm oriented so that a two-dimensional (2-D) in-plane (P-SV) problem results. By Fourier series expansions, the problem is solved(More)
