Abstract : An extension is made of two-dimension l equations to include the piezoelectric relations and the electric field equations. The equations obtained are also extensions of previous equations in which the thickness-shear modes, the piezoelectric effect and the electric field equations were taken into account, but coupling with extensional modes was omitted. The ew equations are deduced from the t r e-dimensional, linear, piezoelectric equations by a procedure based on the series expansion methods of Cauchy and Poisson and the variational method of Kirchhoff.
