Keywords Moving antiplane shear cracks; Piezoelectric crystal; Dislocation layers.

The elastic and electric fields created around an infinite row of collinear, antiplane shear cracks moving within a hexagonal piezoelectric crystal are studied using an extended method of dislocation layers. The solutions for a finite piezoelectric plate containing a single crack and a plate with an edge crack are also supplied by this analysis.
