A theoretical model of a single piezoelectric fibre pull-out is developed to study the interaction between fibre deformation, pull-out stress and corresponding electrical field. Computer simulation of the stress-displacement curve of the fibre pull-out process is presented. Numerical examples show that the piezoelectric fibre pull-out behaviour can be both described and affected by its electrical field. Therefore, the interactions between the mechanical and electric fields of the fibre/matrix...[Show more]
