Abstract
A numerical method for the performance evaluation of LIPCA actuators is proposed using a finite element method. Fully-coupled formulations for piezo-electric materials are introduced and eight-node incompatible elements used. After verifying the developed code, the behavior of LIPCA actuators is investigated.
