Theory of Electroelasticity

Authors: Kuang, Zhen-Bang

  • Proposes a new principle: Physical variational principle and inertial entropy theory, using these principles derive governing equation
  • Tries to unify and modify the theoretical results of electroelastic and thermoelectroelastic analyses (stress, electric field, etc) published in literatures
  • Discusses the failure theory of electroelastic materials

About this book

Theory of Electroelasticity analyzes the stress, strain, electric field and electric displacement in electroelastic structures such as sensors, actuators and other smart materials and structures. This book also describes new theories such as the physical variational principle and the inertial entropy theory. It differs from the traditional method by using the physical variational principle to derive the governing equations of the piezoelectric material, whereas the Maxwell stress is obtained automatically. By using the inertial entropy theory, the temperature wave equation is obtained very easily.

The book is intended for scientists, researchers and engineers in the areas of mechanics, physics, smart material and control engineering as well as mechanical, aeronautical and civil engineering, etc.

Zhen-Bang Kuang is a professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Reviews

“The book represents a panoramic review of electroelasticity, including the theoretical basis, as well as numerous applications to piezoelectrics and pyroelectrics. This is based in many parts on own research work by the author and collaborators, and is intended for a large audience of readers with interest in the subject. The book has eight chapters, with a list of references at the end of each.” (Ahmed Ghaleb, zbMATH 1323.74002, 2015)
