Abstract

In this paper, the behavior of a Griffith crack in a piezoelectric material under anti-plane shear loading is investigated by using the non-local theory for impermeable crack surface conditions. By using the Fourier transform, the problem can be solved with two pairs of dual integral equations. These equations are solved using Schmidt method. Numerical examples are provided. Contrary to the previous results, it is found that no stress and electric displacement singularity is present at the crack tip.
