We present some preliminary results regarding the response of a two-phase, rank-1laminated dielectric composite subjected to large deformations, where the stress state in each phase is obtained in terms of macroscopic deformation gradient and macroscopic nominal stress. It is shown that, for some lamination angles, the performance of the composite –in terms of actuation strain– is improved with respect to the homogeneous case
