Stability issues in pre-stressed and pre-polarized piezoelectrics

Eveline Baesu, Department of Engineering Mechanics, Department of Engineering Mechanics, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, W304 Nebraska Hall, Lincoln, NE 68588

A framework suited for the study of material stability of pre-stressed and pre-polarized piezoelectric single crystals under superposed infinitesimal deformations and electric fields is discussed. Stability issues are discussed in the context of superposed infinitesimal plane harmonic waves; stability envelopes for the biasing fields are established through this analysis.
