Homogenization of the fluid-saturated piezoelectric porous media

  title={Homogenization of the fluid-saturated piezoelectric porous media},
  author={Eduard Rohan and Vladim{\'i}r Lukes},
The paper is devoted to the homogenization of porous piezoelectric materials saturated by electrically inert fluid. The solid part of a representative volume element consists of the piezoelectric skeleton with embedded conductors. The pore fluid in the periodic structure can constitute a single connected domain, or an array of inclusions. Also the conducting parts are represented by several mutually separated connected domains, or by inclusions. Two of four possible arrangements are considered…

Second-Order Asymptotic Analysis and Computations of Axially and Spherically Symmetric Piezoelectric Problems for Composite Structures
It is validated from the numerical examples that the asymptotic models proposed in the current work are effective to capture the macroscopic performance of the piezoelectric structures and the second-order expansions of the solutions is essential for obtaining the correct distributions of the stress and electric displacement.
