dc.description.abstractA model simulating the effects of the control potential on the static configuration of a piezo-elastic structure is presented. This model is centred on the electric displacement field, which is shown to be divergence free. Thus, the surface charge effect no control over the configuration of a piezo-elastic structure, save for the control potential derived through passive or active control. Results show that at zero gain the proposed model resembles a structure free from piezoelectric control. Thus, no fictituous stiffness is introduced as is the case with models presented in the literature.en_US
