A micromechanics boundary element (BE) algorithm is developed to predict the overall properties of a piezoelectric material with defects such as cracks or holes. The algorithm is based on micromechanics models and boundary element formulation for piezoelectric materials with cracks or holes. In particular, the self-consistent and Mori-Tanaka methods are considered. A representative volume model for materials with defects is employed and introduced into a BE formulation to provide an effective...[Show more]
