Unformatted text preview: distribution. Two of the resistors (R2 and R3) are parallel to the
direction of stress, and change their resistance due to the longitudinal piezoresistive effect. Two other resistors
(R1 and R4) are perpendicular to the applied stress, and change their resistance due to the transverse piezoresistive
effect. A static analysis is performed to determine the output voltage Vo. Results are compared to the analytical
solution given by
