Analysis of the shear stress transferred from a partially electroded piezoelectric actuator to an elastic substrate

Abstract

The shear stress distribution between a partially electroded thin piezoelectric film and a semi-infinite elastic substrate is analyzed. It is shown that the shear stress is governed by a pair of integro-differential equations. These equations are solved numerically using the concept of elements and the finite difference method. A few special cases are… (More)
