Singular stress fields at a vertex of the interface in three-dimensional piezoelectric bonded joints are analyzed. A conservative integral based on the Betti reciprocal principle is applied for calculating the intensities of singularities. Eigenanalysis formulated using a three-dimensional finite element method (FEM) is used to calculate the order of stress singularity, angular functions of mechanical displacements, stresses, electric displacements and electric potential. A bimaterial bonded joint with three terms of singularities is investigated. In order to study the influence of mesh refinement and integral area on the accuracy of the results, two models with different element sizes and various integral areas are used. The results are compared with those obtained from conventional FEM, in which using extremely refined meshes near the singular point.
