Paper Abstract

Field singularities of collinear electrodes on the surface of a half-infinite electrostrictive solid are studied in terms of the complex variable method. Firstly, the general solutions for the potential functions of electric fields and stresses are derived for the case of collinear electrodes based on analytical continuation method, and then explicit results are given for the cases of single electrode. Numerical calculations are also made to discuss the effects of applied electric loading on the field singularities near the electrode. It is found that even at the low level of applied electric loading, considerable high stresses will be induced around the electrodes, especially at the tip of electrode.
