  journal={Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems},
The constitutive equations of multilayered piezoelectric structures are derived in a new form. In this form, the electromechanical coupling is presented as an additional stiffness matrix. This matrix is a true property of the piezoelectric structure and is independent of specific mechanical boundary conditions that may apply to the structure. A novel model of the electromechanical response of such structures is presented. This model accounts for the three-dimensional (3-D) kinematics of the… CONTINUE READING
