piezoelectric composite plate analysis using ansys

which element should i consider for the piezoelectric composite plate analysis in ansys. the lay up consists of top and bottom piezo layers and middle graphite epoxy? i want to apply sinusoidal voltage on top piezo layer and i need noidal deflections, please help in doing

On the Possibility of Piezoelectric Nanocomposites without using Piezoelectric Materials

In a piezoelectric material an applied uniform strain can induce an electric polarization (or vice-versa). Crystallographic considerations restrict this technologically important property to non-centrosymmetric systems. It can be shown both mathematically and physically, that a non-uniform strain can potentially break the inversion symmetry and induce polarization even in non-piezoelectric dielectrics.
