Paper Abstract

In the present work, the existing formulation of nine-node shell element based on Hellinger-Reissner principle is expanded for electro-mechanically coupled field analysis. The electro-mechanical coupling effect of the piezoelectric material is introduced to the formulation through the constitutive relation. Based on the formulation, a linear finite element code is constructed and it is validated by several numerical tests. By using the code, linear analysis of LIPCA(LIghtweight Piezoelectric Composite Actuator) is performed to calculate actuation displacement and stress. Moreover, to improve simulation result more accurately, an experimental piezo-strain function of PZT(3203HD, CTS) wafer that is embedded in LIPCA is obtained from measured data and the function is implemented into the code by adopting incremental method. And then, the actuation displacement of LIPCA is recalculated and the result is compared with the measured data.
