Abstract

A methodology for the measurement of high field strain and polarisation responses of fine scale piezoelectric fibres is presented. Using analytical models, the response of the fibres is extracted from measurements made on 1-3 composites. Analytical modelling shows that composites with a high fibre volume fraction are desirable for accurate prediction of the fibres response. Poor model response at low fibre volume fractions is attributed to non-linear material properties, and deviation from the model assumptions.
