Effect of electromechanical coupling on static deformations and natural frequencies


A two-way coupled electromechanical theory is used to study static deformations and free vibrations of a laminated hybrid rectangular plate comprised of either piezoceramic (PZT) layers or patches embedded at arbitrary locations in graphite/epoxy layers. A first-order shear deformation theory is used to develop equations for the plate which are solved by… (More)
