Transducer for measuring transient tangential motion

  title={Transducer for measuring transient tangential motion},
  author={Jr. Thomas M. Proctor},
A transducer is provided for measuring tangential dynamic displacement of a transient nature at a point location on the surface of a mechanical body. This broadband transducer is particularly useful for detection and measurement of acoustic emission signals. The essential components are a large, extended compound backing (1), a sensing piezoelectric element of low geometric symmetry (2) having the proper static polarization, an electrode system (3) and (4), an attachment process (3a), and a… CONTINUE READING
