|Title:||The resonance frequencies on mechanically pre-stressed ultrasonic piezotransducers|
|Abstract:||The piezotransducers employed in high power ultrasound are composed of piezoelectric ceramics and metallic pieces. These transducers are mechanically pre-stressed in order to avoid the ceramic fractures when high voltage is applied under resonance. The resonance and anti-resonance frequencies are shifted depending on the level of applied mechanical pre-stressing. This paper discusses some causes of this shifting on a experimental study. The discussion takes into account the variations on characteristic parameters of the ceramics and the acoustic coupling between parts of the transducer. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
