In the present study, a conservative integral based on the Betti reciprocal principle is formulated in order to obtain the intensity of singularity at a vertex of the interface in three-dimensional piezoelectric bi-material bonded joints. To our knowledge, there are few studies on the determination of the intensity of singularity in the three-dimensional piezoelectric bonded joints. In addition, no study on the determination of the intensity of singularity in the 3D piezoelectric bonded joints using the conservative integral has been conducted. Eigenanalysis formulated using a three-dimensional finite element method (FEM) is used to calculate the order of stress singularity, angular variables of mechanical displacements, stresses, electric displacements and electric potential. In order to investigate the influence of an integral area on the accuracy of the results, models with various integral areas are used. The results are compared with those obtained from FEM.
