Abstract

A coupled thermo-piezoelectric-mechanical model of composite laminates with surface bonded piezoelectric actuators, subjected to externally applied loads, is developed in this paper. The governing differential equations are obtained by applying the principle of free energy and Hamilton's principle. A higher order displacement field combined with double triangular function expansion is assumed. Both thermal load and mechanical load are considered and the effect of actuation is studied. Composite laminates of various thickness and length are studied. The thermal coupling is shown to have significant effect in both quasi-static response analyses and the active response analyses.
