About this book

"Advanced Mechanics of Piezoelectricity" presents a comprehensive treatment of piezoelectric materials using linear electroelastic theory, symplectic models, and Hamiltonian systems. It summarizes the current state of practice and presents the most recent research findings in piezoelectricity. It is intended for researchers and graduate students in the fields of applied mechanics, material science and engineering, computational engineering, and aerospace engineering.

Dr. Qinghua Qin is a professor at the School of Engineering, Australian National University, Australia.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book describes the development of solution methods for piezoelectric composites and is written for applied mathematicians, mechanical engineers, materials scientists and researchers interested in piezoelectric materials. … The book is … one of the best books dealing with crack and contact problems for piezoelectric materials. … a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners in the field of piezoelectric research.” (Brij M. Singh, Mathematical Reviews, January, 2014)

“This book contains a preface and eight chapters, each endowed with a list of references. The book also includes numerous figures and tables. The aim is to present in every detail the modern mechanics of piezoelectric materials to a rather large audience, ranging from postgraduate students to mechanical engineers and researchers in applied mathematics. The development and use of composite piezoelectric materials is highlighted evidence.” (Ahmed Ghaleb, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1260, 2013)
