The series bimorph configuration (actually two layers of oppositely poled piezo material glued together with a common internal electrode to make sure that both the tension and the compression side of the switch contribute to the output signal and do not cancel out) yields a higher output voltage and is less temperature sensitive than a simple monomorph structure of a single disk of a piezoelectric material placed on a backing plate. When there is no cut, it is simply equal to material’s intrinsic piezoelectric coefficient (d 31). The coupling factor kxy measures the effectiveness of a piezoelectric material and can vary in different directions within a material. A second involves the stretching of a piezoelectric material that could, in principle, be used to generate power from a tethered buoy if the generator was mounted into the tether. 0000026723 00000 n The piezoelectric materials can produce only electrical response to the dynamic mechanics. A generic single degree of freedom electromechanical interaction where the host structure is represented by drive point mechanical impedance. dxy), where x relates to the direction of generation of polarisation in electrodes perpendicular to the vertical direction, and y refers to the applied mechanical stress in the lateral direction. Based on this, the governing dynamic equilibrium equations in weak variational form under a sinusoidal excitation frequency ω for a body made of a piezoelectric material with a mass density γ can be written as given below (Eer Nisse 1967). Lim and Soh (2012, 2013) presented a series of investigative studies on the effects of boundary condition and axial load on the admittance signatures acquired from the EMI technique. <]>> Selection of an appropriate material for a transducer is based upon many factors, including material properties, transducer area, and frequencyofoperation.
