Abstract: Smart structures are the structures where in piezoelectric layers are attached to elastic layers in patches or in distributed form. Among many types of smart or adaptive materials, piezoelectric materials are primarily use because, theoretical analysis of this material has been so well developed. In this paper an analytical procedure is developed for investigating the bending characteristics of smart material plates subjected to electromechanical loading based on higher order shear deformation theory. The solutions are obtained using Naviers method for anti- symmetric angle ply composite laminated plates attached with piezoelectric layer with a specific type of simply supported boundary conditions. The results obtained in this paper have been validated with authors.
Keywords: Higher order theory; piezoelectric material; Naviers method.
Smart materials also called as a new class of structures has been produced by sensors and actuators to perform self- monitoring and self-controlling system. Sensing and actuating the structure could be applied in many engineering applications such as aircraft structures, large space structures, satellites, automotive industries, sports goods, medical devices etc. by incorporating smart structures with piezoelectric devices. Y. L. Zhou  has investigated static and dynamic analysis of composite laminated plates attached with piezoelectric layer using three different finite element models based on generalized laminate plate theory of Reddy. Taotao Zhang et al  have studied the bending behavior of piezoelectric curved actuator with generally graded properties for one of the piezoelectric parameter. Two piezoelectric actuators considered by Shiuh- Chuan Her et al  in their investigation which are symmetrically surface bonded on a cross-ply composite laminate. They have used the plate theory for solving a simply supported composite plate subjected to bending moment. For validation purpose they have compared their analytical solution with finite element solution. M. Tahani et al  have analyzed analytically flexural behavior of piezolaminated rectangular plates with specific boundary conditions based on extended Kantorovich method. They have compared the results with other investigators and also results obtained for plates with admissible boundary conditions by Navier and Levy methods. K. M. Liew et al  presented meshfree formulation based on first order
shear deformation theory for static analysis of laminated composite beams and plates with bonded piezoelectric layers. They have taken piezoelectric stiffness into account in model and derived the formulation based on variation principle. They have found from the investigation that actuator patches bonded on composite laminated plate are significant in deflection control. Alden C. Cook et al  considered two model problems for multiscale analysis procedure. In their first model problem they have considered a simply-supported sandwich plate consisting of a piezoceramic fibre and bottom surfaces. Where, as second model concerns a cantilever graphite substrate with segmented piezoceramic fiber composite extension actuators attached to its top. Iskandar Al-Thani Mahmood et al  have controlled the shape control analysis of piezoelectric composite laminated plate by adopting a finite element model. They have modeled actuators and sensors as additional layers which are either bonded or embedded to composite laminated plate. W.Q. Chen et al  have considered static and dynamic analysis of simply supported angle-ply composite laminates in cylindrical bending. Based on three dimensional exact elasticity equations they have employed a state-space approach which is effective in analyzing laminated structures. Nilanjan Mallik et al  have investigated performance of piezoelectric fibre reinforced composite material as the distributed actuator for smart composite laminated plates. They have performed the investigation for finding the exact solutions for static analysis of simply supported symmetric and anti-symmetric cross-ply laminated plates integrated with a layer of PFRC material. Osama J Aldraihem et al  have obtained the analytical solutions for bending analysis of anti-symmetric angle-ply composite laminated plates with thickness-shear piezoelectric layers. They have investigated the effects of composite and piezoelectric ply angle on the laminate deflection. They have observed from their results that increasing the ply-angle has always magnifies the deflection. J Shiva Kumar et al  has analyzed a simply supported cross-ply elastic substrate plates integrated with a layer of PFRC material. They have employed a Galerkin procedure for deriving nonlinear algebraic governing equations. S. M. Shiyekar et al  presented an analytical solution for cross ply composite laminates attached with PFRC actuator under bi-directional bending. They have obtained equations of equilibrium using principle of minimum potential energy and compared the results with exact solution. Based on first order shear deformation theory Liew et al  has presented an efficient meshfree formulation for static analysis of
composite laminated plates and beams with integrated piezoelectric layers. They have taken piezoelectric stiffness into account and derived the formulation from variational principle. They found from results, actuator patches bonded on high strain regions have significant role in controlling deflections of laminated composite plates. An analytical solution for cross-ply composite laminates integrated with piezoelectric fiber- reinforced composite (PFRC) actuators under bidirectional bending is presented by Kant et al . A higher order shear and normal deformation theory (HOSNT12) is used by them to analyze smart materials subjected to electromechanical loading. Based on Hamiltons principle and finite element methods, linear response of piezothermoelastic plate has outlined by Fariborz Heidary et al . They presented numerical results for a piezolaminated plate subjected to thermomechanical loadings. With use of electric potential difference across piezo layers, vibrations can be suppressed on piezolaminated composite plate.
In formulating the higher order shear deformation theory, a rectangular plate of 0 x a; 0 y b bonded with piezoelectric layer is considered.
In order to approximate 3D-elasticity plate problem to a 2D one, the displacement components u (x, y, z, t), v(x, y, z, t) and w (x, y, z, t) at any point in the plate are expanded in terms of the thickness coordinate. The displacement field which assumes w (x, y, z) constant through the plate thickness and thus

The displacements at the mid plane will be defined to satisfy the above boundary conditions. These displacements will be substituted in governing equations to obtain the equations in terms of A, B, D parameters.

Analytical procedure has been developed for composite laminate plates attached with piezoelectric layer under electromechanical loading is discussed in this paper. Higher order shear deformation theory is used to model elastic substrate response to voltages. Comparative numerical results for across the thickness variations of stresses are presented. It can be concluded from results that the actuating effects are more in case of thick than thin laminates. From the results it is found that the obtained values are in close form with available literature.
