Paper Abstract

This paper is concerned with the mathematical modeling of a nonlinear laminated anisotropic piezoelectric structure in which geometric nonlinearity induced by large deformations is considered. A generic theory is proposed and its nonlinear thermo-electromechanical equations are derived based on the variational principle. Thermo-electromechanical couplings among the elastic, electric, and temperature fields are discussed, and nonlinear components identified. Applications of the nonlinear theory to other materials, continua, and linear cases are discussed.
