About this Textbook

This textbook introduces theoretical piezoelectricity. The second edition updates a classical, seminal reference on a fundamental topic that is addressed in every materials science curriculum. It presents a concise treatment of the basic theoretical aspects of continuum modeling of electroelastic interactions in solids. The general nonlinear theory for large deformations and strong fields is established and specialized to the linear theory for small deformations and weak fields, i.e., the theory of piezoelectricity. Relatively simple and useful solutions of many static and dynamic problems of piezoelectricity that are useful in device applications are given. Emphasis is on the formulation of solutions to problems rather than advanced mathematical solution techniques. This book includes many examples to assist and enhance students’ understanding of piezoelectricity and piezoelastics.

About the authors

Jiashi Yang received his B.E. and M.E. in Engineering Mechanics in 1982 and 1985 from Tsinghua University, China, M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 1988 from Syracuse University, USA, and his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering in 1993 from Princeton University, USA. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow from 1993 through 1994 at the University of Missouri-Rolla and from 1994 through 1995 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He was employed by Motorola, Inc. from 1995 through 1997. Since 1997 he has been an Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His main research area is theoretical and numerical modeling of piezoelectric structures and devices.
