For the analysis and design process of smart structures with integrated piezoelectric patches, the finite element method provides an effective simulation approach. In this paper, an attempt on modeling and simulation of the behavior of hybrid active structures is carried out using developed Kirchhoff-type-four-node shell element.

The finite element results are compared with reference solutions taking into account the electromechanical responses of smart structures with various geometries, and the results show very high agreement. The main aspect of the application of the proposed element is to predict the behavior of FGM shells containing piezoelectric layers. A set of numerical analyses is performed in order to highlight the applicability and effectiveness of the present finite element model, notably for smart FGM structures. A comprehensive parametric study is conducted to show the influence of material composition, the placement and the thickness of the piezoelectric layers on the deformation of the laminated structure.
