Layer-wise and equivalent single layer plate models for magneto-electro-elastic multiphysics laminates are presented in a unified framework. They are based on variable kinematics and quasi-static behavior of the electromagnetic fields. The electromagnetic state of each single layer is preliminary determined by solving the corresponding governing equations coupled with the proper interface continuity and external boundary conditions. By so doing, the electromagnetic state is condensed into the plate kinematics and the layer governing equations are inferred by the principle of virtual displacements. This approach identifies effective mechanical layers, which are kinematically equivalent to the original smart layers. These effective layers are characterized by stiffness, inertia and load properties which take the multifield coupling effects into account as their definitions involve the electromagnetic coupling material properties. The layers governing equations are finally assembled enforcing the mechanical interface conditions. This allows to obtain the smart plate resolving system, which involves primary mechanical variables only. Results for thick simply-supported multilayered plates are obtained by an exact closed-form Navier-type solution and compared with benchmark 3D solutions to investigate the features and accuracy of the proposed modeling approach. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
