This paper describes the modelling and comparison of 0-3 and 3-3 piezocomposites, including three-component structures such as 0-0-3 systems. The piezoelectric properties are calculated for PbTiO3 based piezocomposites where the anisotropy factor (-d(33)/d(31)) of the piezoelectric can be varied from small to infinitely large values. Maxima of these parameters are determined and factors influencing piezoelectric sensitivity are analysed.
