To understand the coupling between the electrical and mechanical properties of piezoelectric continua, we must supplement the discussion of continuum mechanics and linear elasticity presented in Chapter 3 with the review of continuum electrodynamics in this chapter. The fundamental definitions of charge, current, charge density, current density, bound charge density, and free charge density are discussed in Section 4.1. The electric and magnetic fields are introduced in Section 4.2. The dynamic coupling of the electric and magnetic fields is determined by Maxwell’s equations, which are introduced in Section 4.3. The polarization and electric displacement are discussed in Section 4.3.1, while the magnetization and magnetic field intensity are introduced in Section 4.3.2.
