Abstract:In this paper we present a meshless based Finite Cloud Method (FCM) for the numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) governing piezoelectricity. Using a point distribution, FCM constructs interpolation functions without assuming any connectivity between the points. A collocation approach is employed to obtain a solution at every point within the domain. The coupled mechanical and electrical equations of a piezoelectric material are solved by an iterative FCM. This approach has been verified on two static two-dimensional piezoelectric problems with exact analytical solutions
