On some three-dimensional problems of piezoelectricity

TK Saha, S Saha

Abstract


The problem of an elliptical crack embedded in an unbounded transversely isotropic piezoelectric medium and subjected to
remote normal loading is considered first. The integral equation method developed by Roy and his coworkers has been applied
suitably with proper modifications to solve the problem. The method has been further applied to solve the problem of a rigid
elliptical punch indenting a transversely isotropic piezoelectric half space.
