Wave Propagation Analysis of Piezoelectric Nanoplates Based on the Nonlocal Theory
|Published in:||International Journal of Structural Stability and Dynamics, March 2018, n. 4, v. 18|
Based on the nonlocal theory, this paper develops the Kirchhoff nanoplate and Mindlin nanoplate models for the wave propagation analysis of piezoelectric nanoplates. The effects of small scale parameter and thermo-electro-mechanical loads are incorporated in the nanoplate models. The Hamilton’s principle is employed to derive the governing equations of the nanoplate, which are solved analytically to obtain the dispersion relation for piezoelectric nanoplates. The results show that the nonlocal parameter, temperature change, mechanical load and external electric potential have significant influence on the wave propagation characteristics of the piezoelectric nanoplates. The cut-off wave number is observed to exist for piezoelectric nanoplates subjected to positive electric potential, axial tensile force and temperature rise.
