Abstract

Abstract The delamination growth may occur in delaminated piezoelectric shell subjected to external dynamic load and it will further cause structural failure. Based on the variational principle of moving boundary and considering the contact effect between delamination regions, in this paper, the nonlinear governing equations for the delaminated piezoelectric shell under hygrothermal condition are derived, and the corresponding boundary and matching conditions are given. At the same time, according to the Griffith criterion, the formulas of energy release rate along the delamination front are obtained and the delamination growth is studied. In the numerical calculation, the energy release rate and delamination growth of axisymmetrical piezoelectric cylindrical shell are analyzed, and the effects of geometric nonlinear, voltage, temperature and humidity, mechanical load, delamination length and depth, geometrical parameter and boundary condition on delamination growth are discussed.
