A Comparative Study of the Hydrostatic Performances of 1-3 Piezoelectric Composites with a Porous Matrix
In this research, a comparative study of the hydrostatic performances of 1-3 piezoelectric composites with a porous matrix is presented. The piezoelectric fibers PZT-5H and PZT-7A are considered in the present study. The micromechanics based Mori-Tanaka model is used. Results of the study show that PZT-5H/Aradite D composite have better hydrostatic performance than PZT- 7A/Aradite D composite, and this advantage of PZT-5H/Aradite D composite over PZT-7A/Aradite D composite increases with the increase of porosity in the matrix.
