The modelization of general linear piezoelectric thin shells requires the use of a representation of the geometry by a set, of curvilinear coordinates. In this paper, start by giving an existence result for a general piezoelectric mat trial the representation of which uses curvilinear coordinates. Then we particularize such a result to a three-dimensional piezoelectric shell, and, finally, we show how this existence result can he extended to two-dimensional theories including, or not, the effect of transverse shear strains.
