Paper Abstract

A discrete phase model is used to simulate evolution of domain structures in ferroelectric materials. The discrete phase model balances the structural energy against local mechanical and electrical energies. Devonshire theory is used to model the structural energy while a finite element framework using scalar potential theory computes the local electric field and stress.
