Hi all
I need a solver for piezoelectric material
is there this solver ?
I am so thankful if anyone can help me about this solver

Bet Regards

You'll have to code the solver yourself. From my understanding of solid mechanics and solid state physics (which is now 5 years old and hasn't been used in any of that time), solidDisplacementFoam is your best starting point. Have a particular look at the optional Temperature field coupling, as you'll need to solve for both the stress field and the electric field strength.

mhdFoam might also be a good reference for some implementation ideas:
