Fundamental solutions for transient dynamic piezo-electricity are derived through the plane wave decomposition and represented in three alternative manners, namely over the unit sphere, over the material’s slowness surface and over a line of the latter. The computational virtues of the uni-dimensional integral representation are exposed through a numerical example concerning a transversely isotropic piezoelectric ceramic subjected to unitary impulsive applied forces.
