Unformatted text preview: most popular piezoelectric polymer material for shock sensors. In order for PVDF to be used as a stress gauge, it is necessary to reproducibly manufacture poled piezoelectric transducer elements with defined homogeneity and stability. Since the gauge element is often destroyed in the calibration experiment, reproducibility in the manufacturing processes is paramount to the use of PVDF as an accurate stress gauge. PVDF Piezoelectricity in various aeronautical and space applications Actuators (vibration and noise control) MEMS based flow sensors and actuators for drag reduction are possible applications for piezoelectric coatings on aircraft....
