and embedded smart materials is presented in this study. In this study, the
fundamental theory was derived based on the generic first-order transversely
shearable deformation theory involving Codazzi-Gauss geometrical discretion.
The fundamental equation and its boundary conditions was strenuously derived
using Hamilton’s principle with
cooperating of Gibbs free energy function. The theory was casted in version
of shell of revolution, in order to be simplified to account for commonly occurring
sensors and actuator geometries and intended for wide range of common smart
materials. Then the developed theory was solved by the generic forced-solution
procedure. The responses and their frequency parameters were evaluated in the
simply supported boundary condition. The results have shown a close agreement
with those reported in literature. The developed theory and the presented solution
procedure may serve as a reference in developing the magneto-thermo-electro-elastic
shell theories and to improve the benchmark solutions for judging the existence
of imprecise theories and other numerical approaches.]]>Bao, Y.,1996Bassiouny, E.,2006Pan, E. and P.R. Heyliger,2001Pan, E. and P.R. Heyliger,2002Pan, E. and F. Han,2005Heyliger, P.R. and E.
