About this book

This book covers the entire field of piezoelectric sensors for mechanical measurands. Scientists, engineers and technicians, as well as students in engineering will find in this book for the first time a complete overview of this special type of sensors. Extensive practical advice is given throughout the text allowing the reader to profit from the authors many years experience. The book offers an overview of the most important piezoelectric materials and their properties as well as a consistent terminology for describing sensors. It contains a description of sensors for force, strain, pressure, acceleration, and acoustic emission and an in-depth description of the special electronics used with piezolectric sensors. Informations on calibrating sen- sors and electronics are given, as well as numerous examples of practical applications.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Piezoelectric Sensorics is the first book written in English to cover the entire field of piezoelectric sensors for mechanical measurands. It provides a comprehensive overview of the subject and describes the characteristics and practical applications for each type of sensor presented. … This book is well written, technically informative and a pleasure to read. It provides extensive practical advice and clear coverage of the theory, making it suitable for students, scientists, technicians and engineers." (Sensor Review, Vol. 22 (4), 2002)
