AbstractIn recent years, guided wave propagation in piezoelectric-piezomagnetic composite (PPC) structures are paid much attention for the design and optimization of PPC transducers. Previous investigations are mainly limited in horizontally infinite flat plates, axially infinite hollow cylinders, and so on. They are all one-dimensional model structures, i.e. structures having variable displacement field in only one direction, and the other two displacement fields are both constant. In this

The validity of the double polynomial approach is illustrated by the comparison with the available reference results for a pure elastic homogeneous rectangular bar. The guided wave characteristics, including dispersion curves and mechanical displacement distributions, are discussed by calculating various FGPP rectangular bars.
