Using the Green's functions, the general solutions of a three-dimensional crack problem in piezoelectric materials under mechanical and electrical loads is derived by boundary element method. Then this crack problem is reduced to solve a set of hypersingular integral equations coupled with boundary integral equations. The unknown functions are the discontinuities of the elastic displacements and electrical potential of the crack surface. The singularity of the unknowns at the crack front is… CONTINUE READING
