Piezoelectric coefficients eij are used to describe a link between an external mechanical strain and a piezoelectric polarisation caused by the direct piezoelectric effect. The piezoelectric coefficients eij are of importance to analyse a link between a mechanical stress and an external electric field at the converse piezoelectric effect. Examples of the piezoelectric sensitivity of composites with various connectivity patterns are discussed in terms of the effective piezoelectric coefficients and relations between the piezoelectric coefficients and Of specific interest are a non-monotonic behaviour of large values of and considerable anisotropy of as well as their links to the microgeometry and properties of components.
