Paper Abstract

We derive a Kth order (K = 0,1,2,3...) Piezoelectric plate theory from a 3D mixed variational principle. The balance laws, constitutive relations and the boundary conditions are deduced. The application of the theory is illustrated by analyzing the cylindrical bending deformations of a cantilever PZT5A plate loaded on the top and/or bottom surfaces by a uniformly distributed charge density. We also ascertain deformations of the plate for different values of the angle between the poling direction and the normal to the midsurface of the plate.
