The Effect of Imperfect Bonding Layer on the Electromechanical Behaviour of Surface-bonded Piezoelectric Sensors

The behaviour of a piezoelectric sensor is strongly affected by the bonding condition along the interface between the sensor and the host structure. The current paper represents an analytical study of the static effect of the mechanical and geometrical properties of the adhesive layer on the coupled electromechanical behaviour of a thin piezoceramic sensor… (More)
