An eigenfunction expansion approach is combined with a power series solution technique to establish the asymptotic solutions for geometrically induced electroelastic singularities in a piezoelectric body of revolution, with its direction of polarization not parallel to the axis of revolution. The asymptotic solutions are obtained by directly solving the three-dimensional equilibrium and Maxwell's equations in terms of displacement components and electric potential. When the direction of polarization is not along the axis of revolution, the assumption of axisymmetric deformation that is often made in the published literature is not valid, and the direction of polarization and the circular coordinate variable can substantially affect the singularities. The numerical results related to singularity orders are shown in graphical form for bodies of revolution that comprise a single material (PZT-4 or PZT-5H) or bonded piezo/piezo (PZT-4/PZT-5H) or piezo/isotropic elastic (PZT-4/Al or PZT-5H/Al) materials. This is the first study to present results for the direction of polarization not along the axis of revolution.
