Based on the theory of elasticity and piezoelectricity, a dynamic model of laminated elastic-piezoelectric rectangular plates is considered. The bending equations are established and solved, taking the nonlinear behavior of the piezoelectric material into account. The resonance frequency of a laminated piezoelectric rectangular plate with four kinds of different boundary conditions is then investigated. The present results agree very well with the experimental findings and can be extended to practical applications, such as considering the effect of an epoxy package on the resonance of piezoceramic plate.
