چکیده

In this paper‎, ‎the static bending‎, ‎free vibration‎, ‎and dynamic response of functionally graded‎ ‎piezoelectric beams have been carried out by finite element method‎‎under different sets of mechanical‎, ‎thermal‎, ‎and electrical‎ ‎loadings‎. ‎The beam with functionally graded piezoelectric material‎ ‎(FGPM) is assumed to be graded across the thickness with a simple‎ ‎power law distribution in terms of the volume fractions of the‎ ‎constituents‎. ‎The electric potential is assumed linear across the‎ ‎FGPM beam thickness‎. ‎The temperature field is assumed to be of‎ ‎uniform distribution over the beam surface and through the beam‎ ‎thickness‎. ‎The governing equations are obtained using potential‎ ‎energy and Hamilton's principle based on the Euler-Bernoulli beam‎ ‎theory that includes thermo-piezoelectric effects‎. ‎The finite‎ ‎element model is derived based on the constitutive equation of‎ ‎piezoelectric material accounting for coupling between the‎ ‎elasticity and the electric effect by two nodes Hermitian beam‎ ‎element‎. ‎The present finite element is modelled with displacement‎ ‎components and electric potential as nodal degrees of freedom‎. ‎The‎ ‎temperature field is calculated by post-computation through the‎ ‎constitutive equation‎. ‎Results are presented for two-constituent‎ ‎FGPM beam under different mechanical boundary conditions‎. ‎Numerical results include the influence of the different power law‎ ‎indexes‎, ‎the effect of mechanical‎, ‎thermal‎, ‎and electrical‎ ‎loadings and the type of in-plane boundary conditions on the‎ ‎deflection‎, ‎stress‎, ‎natural frequencies‎, ‎and dynamic response‎. ‎The‎ ‎numerical results obtained by the present model are in good‎ ‎agreement with the available solutions reported in the‎ ‎literature.

In this paper an overview of functionally graded materials and constitutive relations of electro elasticity for three-dimensional deformable  solids is presented, and  governing equations of the Bernoulli–Euler and Timoshenko beam theories which account for through-thickness power-law variation of a two-constituent material and piezoelectric layers are developed  using the  principle  of virtua...

In this paper, nonlinear vibration analysis of functionally graded piezoelectric (FGP) beam with porosities material is investigated based on the Timoshenko beam theory. Material properties of FG porous beam are described according to the rule of mixture which modified to approximate material properties with porosity phases. The Ritz method is used to obtain the governing equation which is then...

Finite element formulations based generally on classical beam theories such as Euler-Bernoulli or Timoshenko. Sometimes, these two formulations could be problematic expressed in terms of restrictions of Euler-Bernoulli beam theory, in case of thicker beams due to non-consideration of transverse shear; phenomenon that is known as shear locking characterized the Timoshenko beam theory, in case of...

Composite steel/concrete beams may buckle in hogging bending regions. As the top flange of I-beam in that arrangement is restricted from any translational deformation and twist, the web will distort during buckling presenting a phenomenon often described as restricted distortional buckling. There are limited studies available in the literature of restricted distortional buckling of composite st...

Displacement finite element models of various beam theories have been developed using traditional finite element interpolations (i.e., Hermite cubic or equi-spaced Lagrange functions). Various finite element models of beams differ from each other in the choice of the interpolation functions used for the transverse deflection w, total rotation φ and/or shear strain γxz, or in the integral form u...

Piezoelectric materials are used in many engineering application. When modeling piezoelectric materials the standard assumption is that the electromagnetic field which is used to actuate the piezoelectric material is quasi static. In this paper we show that although the assumption of a quasi static electrical field is valid when one is interested in simulating a piezoelectric material, this ass...
