The present study bestows the analytical investigation of incremental mechanical stresses (compressive stress, shear, and tensile) and electrical displacements (vertical and horizontal components) induced due to a moving line load on an irregular transversely isotropic functionally graded viscoelastic-piezoelectric material (FGVPM) substrate. The closed form expressions of said induced mechanical stresses and induced electrical displacements are deduced and validated with pre-established results for electrically open and short conditions. The elastic moduli (stiffness tensors), piezoelectric moduli, dielectric moduli, elastic loss moduli, piezoelectric loss moduli, and dielectric loss moduli for a viscoelastic-piezoelectric composite are computed and used for numerical computation and graphical demonstration. The effectuality of diverse physical parameters (viz. maximum depth of irregularity, friction due to rough upper surface, functional gradient parameter, irregularity factor associated with different types of irregularity viz. rectangular irregularity, parabolic irregularity and no irregularity) on said induced stresses and electrical displacements in the aforementioned composite substrate has also been discussed. A comparative analysis has also been made to examine the impact of piezoelectricity and viscoelasticity on theon said induced mechanical stresses and induced electrical displacements. In particular, some special peculiarities are also sketched by means of graphs.
