Crack propagation in piezoelectric materials under combined mechanical and electrical loadings
A finite element technique is used to study the stress distributions at the crack tip of a piezoelectric ceramic because of the mechanical and/or electrical loads. The stress distributions at theExpand

Crack propagation in piezoelectric ceramics: Effects of applied electric fields
Crack propagation in a piezoelectric lead–zirconium–titanate (PZT) material under simultaneous mechanical loading and applied electric fields is studied using the Vickers indentation technique. It isExpand
