The theory of linear piezoelectricity is applied to develop an anti-plane crack growth rate equation of a finite crack in a piezoelectric ceramic body with finite width. Plastic zone is assumed to be confined to a sheet ahead of both crack edges similar to the strip model for in-plane loading. The procedure consists of reducing a system of dual integral equations to a Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. The accumulated plastic displacement criterion is used for developing a solution for the crack growth rate. Numerical values of crack growth rate are obtained and the results are displayed graphically to exhibit the electroelastic interactions.
