Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This volume is intended to provide researchers and graduate students with the basic aspects of the continuum modeling of electroelastic interactions in solids. A concise treatment of linear, nonlinear, static and dynamic theories and problems is presented. The emphasis on formulation and understanding of problems useful in device applications rather than solution techniques of mathematical problems. The mathematics used in this book is minimal.

Audience

This volume is suitable for a one-semester graduate course on electroelasticity. It can also be used as a reference for graduate students and researchers in mechanics and acoustics.

By J. Wang on March 18, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book by Prof Yang is an excellent book for people want to know more about piezoelectricity and piezoelectric devices.

It starts with a complete theory of piezoelectricity with the intention to get readers familirize with the fundamentals. This part is complicated from its appearance, but there is a purpose. Such formulation is essential in dealing with complicated issues which discussed in detail later, ie the effect of various bias fields like thermo, stress, acceleration and so on.

After descriptions of the basic nonlinear theory, the chapters followed restore to the linear theory for various strctural elements and applications as devices. It touched almost all applications of acosutic devices with simple analytical solutions.

The methods and techniques are not directly related to the engineering solutions of actual problems, but it is the first step you have to take towards the direction.

I highly recommend this book to graduate students and engineers who are interested in advanced knowledge on this subject.

The forward to the book states " The emphasis is on formulation and understanding of problems useful in device applications rather than solution techniques of mathematical problems. The mathematics used in the book is minimal." This is misleading since the book is about 2/3 equations and 1/3 text. You need strong partial derivative and matrix algebra skills to make use of the book.
That said, it's a useful book.
