A two-dimensional electroelastic formulation is developed to study the response of piezoelectric laminated structures. The methodology is based on a state space formulation where a particular collection of elastic and electrical variables is used to determine the behavior of layered structures subjected to arbitrary loading conditions. The application of this methodology in the area of multilayer electromechanical devices and of adaptive or smart structures is discussed.
