Paper Abstract

A theoretical modeling for composite laminates consisting of piezoelectric materials and behaving with flexible deformation properties is presented. The flexible deformation is described by using the geometrical nonlinear theory and the strain-displacement finite deformation relation. The electromechanically coupled laminate constitutive relation is developed based on composite lamination theory, laminar piezoelectric material properties, and laminate design and structural parameters. The developed theory is generic in nature and expected to be applicable to the general flexible deformed piezoelectric composite laminates.
