Abstract
In the present work, the non-linear analysis of smart beams and plates is performed, using FE techniques. A coupled constitutive formulation between thermal, electrical and mechanical fields is presented incorporating non-linearity due to large displacements. An 8-node plate element was implemented in combination with a discrete layer approximation (LW) for the through the thickness representation of the structure. The issues of the critical buckling load under different electrical conditions as well as thermal and electrical loading are also presented. Experimental results contribute in order to verify the numerical analysis results.
