Changes in properties of piezoelectric elements with compressive stress

An experimental study of the properties of piezoelectric ceramic elements of CTS-19 as a plate thickness of 1, 5, 10 and 15 mm with compressive stress. All measurements were performed in a laboratory setting, provides a compressive stress to 20 MPa. Rated electric charge that occurs when loading piezo elements. It is shown that for CTS-19, the lower limit of the compressive stress is 2 MPa. The peculiarities in the dependence Q(s), associated with a change in the contact area of the piezoelectric element in the process of measuring and reorientation effects.
