Paper Abstract

Interfacial slippage of a piezoelectric inclusion embedded in an infinite piezoelectric matrix is analyzed. A close form solution is formulated for a circular inclusion subjected to a far field in-plane electric loading and a far field out-of-plane mechanical loading. The resulting mixed boundary value problem leads to a system of dual series equations, which is then reduced to a Fredholm integral equation of the first kind. The extent of slip region along the matrix/inclusion interface, which depends on both mechanical and electrical fields, along with the distribution of shear tractions at the interface can then be determined by solving the integral equations numerically.
