About this book

Introduction

This book covers the entire field of piezoelectric sensors for mechanical measurands. Scientists, engineers and technicians, as well as students in engineering will find in this book for the first time a complete overview of this special type of sensors. Extensive practical advice is given throughout the text allowing the reader to profit from the authors many years experience. The book offers an overview of the most important piezoelectric materials and their properties as well as a consistent terminology for describing sensors. It contains a description of sensors for force, strain, pressure, acceleration, and acoustic emission and an in-depth description of the special electronics used with piezolectric sensors. Informations on calibrating sen- sors and electronics are given, as well as numerous examples of practical applications.
