In this paper, a method to make a new kind of piezoelectric composite material that can cancel the thermal bending deformation is proposed. The new composite material is composed of two layers: one layer of main material on the working surface and another layer of piezoelectric material on the opposite side which is used as an actuator to cancel thermal bending deformation. The finite element method is used to analyze the stress distribution and deformation in the new material. An example of application of this method to functionally gradient material is given out.
