Abstract

Soft electro-active tubes are promising electromechanical transducers. Practical applications of such devices involve periodic loading cycles at high frequency and large strains. Hence, the understanding of their dynamic behaviour is important for an effective design. In this work, the dynamic response of soft thick-walled electro-active tubes, subjected to harmonic or suddenly applied constant electric loads, is theoretically studied within the framework of finite elastodynamics.
