Modele matematyczne fenomenologicznej piezoclektryczności

Witold Nowacki

The purpose the paper is to discuss mathematical models of piezo-thermoelectricity. Starting from W. Voigt quasistatic model we pass to more general case in which there is a coupling between the electro-magnetic and deformation fields. The quasistatic model of the thermopiezoelectricity and general model introduced by Mindlin, in which the effect of a polarization gradient in elastic dielectrics is taken into account, have been also considered.
