Paper Abstract

This paper presents a comprehensive description of the physical interactions in a piezoelectric material used in development of smart structures. The governing electro-thermo-elastic equations for the analysis of smart structures have been developed from the fundamental laws of conservation and thermodynamic principles. A brief description of the application of smart technology to rotorcraft is also presented.
