In this paper, a meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method is proposed to calculate mechanical and electrical responses of three-dimensional piezoelectric semiconductors under static load. The analyzed solid is discretized by a set of generally distributed nodal points distributed over 3D geometry. Local integral equations (LIEs) are derived from the weak form of governing equations over small local subdomains. The subdomains have a spherical shape with a nodal point located in its centre. A unit step function is used as the test functions in the local weak-form. The moving least-squares (MLS) method is adopted for the approximation of the physical quantities in the LIEs. The proposed MLPG method is verified by using the corresponding results obtained with the finite element method. Numerical examples are presented and discussed for various boundary conditions and loading scenarios to show the performance of the developed MLPG method for analysis piezoelectric semiconducting solids.

material; it is not a fundamental physical property. It is a measure of how resistant solid matter is to various kinds of permanent changes when a compressive load is applied. Hardness is dependent on ductility, elastic, stiffness, plasticity, strain and so on. According to our analysis, Specimen 3 is having a higher hardness number when compared to the other three specimens at 60 KN (L-Scale) and 100 KN (M-Scale) respectively. Higher the hardness number, lower the temperature to quench it. 4.4 Impact Test Impact strength is the capability of a material to

, the strength of the composite drops similarly, with decrease in matrix strength at increasing temperature. Composites produced at an industrial scale are used for manufacturing of pistons, cylindrical sleeves, disc sand brake drums. Specimens casting is done through stir casting technique. To find the mechanical properties, specimens are subjected to various tests such as wear, hardness, tensile, radiography and impact tests, and interpretation of CAD/CAM/CAE is very helpful to design, analyse, optimize and interpret the data. Compared to traditional aluminium

. The Hemp gives fiber properties similar to fiber glass E, which has very high mechanical properties [ 11 ]. Our work is based on the modeling by a genetic approach of the effect of thermal stress on the improvement of mechanical and physical properties of biocomposite material (Hemp-Sisal/Starch). The results of this modeling will be compared with the results of the nonlinear acoustic technique, which was used to locate the interface damage of the materials studied according to our representative elementary volume (see Figure 1 ).
