Piezoelectric element in contact with a metal

Hi all,

I'm using ABAQUS to do a bit of material modelling.

I don't have concrete understanding of this but I'll explain what I am trying to do:

Essentially a piezoelectric and a metal in contact under strain. The piezoelectric produces an electric potential which I hope can be conducted into the metal, only it doesn't at least not in my modelling.

The hope is that the metal will conduct enough charge from the piezoelectric that I can set up an electric field some distance from the piezoelectric material which doesn't produce an electric field outside its surface.
