Résumé : This article focuses on the modeling of structures equipped with Macro Fiber Composite (MFC) transducers. Based on the uniform field method under the plane stress assumption, we derive analytical mixing rules in order to evaluate equivalent properties for d31 and d33 MFC transducers. In particular, mixing rules are derived for the longitudinal and transverse piezoelectric coefficients of MFCs. These mixing rules are validated using finite element computations and experimental results available from the literature.
