Piezoelectric analysis

 Coupled piezoelectric problems: are those in which an electric potential gradient causes straining, while stress causes an electric potential gradient in the material; are solved using an eigenfrequency extraction, modal dynamic, static, dynamic, or steady-state dynamic procedure; require the use of piezoelectric elements and piezoelectric material properties; can be performed for continuum problems in one, two, and three dimensions; and can be used in both linear and nonlinear analysis (however, in nonlinear analysis the piezoelectric part of the constitutive behavior is assumed to be linear). The following topics are discussed:
