Fracture Mechanics of Ceramics
The energy release rates for dielectric, piezoelectric and ferroelectric strips are analyzed. Energy minimization is used to determine the electromechanical fields in the strip. Once these fields are computed conservation of energy is used to determine the energy release rates. Three different sets of assumptions are used to treat the void space and solid material. First, the standard impermeable void space assumption is analyzed with small deformation assumed to be valid in the solid. Next,doi:10.1007/978-0-387-28920-5_37 fatcat:4byyg4lj7naqxgn44yqwa4vtd4
