Abstract

Interlaminar stress distributions in laminated shell structures using coupled thermal-mechanical piezoelectric-mechanical models were analyzed. Numerical analysis was performed for investigation of laminated composite shells with multiple surface bonded actuators. The piezoelectric loading and thermal loading were considered and the induced deflections and stress distributions were presented. The results obtained indicated that the improved shear deformation theory correlates well with elasticity solutions. The stress analysis results show that thermal mismatch occurs at the interface between the actuator and the primary structure thus resulting in stress concentrations at those interfaces.
