A meshless method based on the local Petrov-Galerkin approach is proposed, to solve static and dynamic problems of two-layered magnetoelectroelastic composites with specific properties. One layer has pure piezoelectric properties and the second one is a pure piezomagnetic material. It is shown that the electric potential in the piezoelectric layer is induced by the magnetic potential in the piezomagnetic layer. The magnetoelectric effect is dependent on the ratio of the layer thicknesses. Functionally graded material properties of the piezoelectric layer and homogeneous properties of the piezomagnetic layer are considered too. The magnetoelectric composites are analyzed under a pure magnetic or combined magneto-mechanical load. Various boundary conditions and geometric parameters are considered to analyze their influence on the value of the electromagnetic parameter.
