Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to investigate the characteristics of a small and inexpensive pressure transducer made from piezoelectric film. The pressure transducer was designed to be small and surface mountable so that the pressure distribution could be measured on an aerodynamic body. A charge reset technique was used to overcome the traditional limitations, low frequency measurements and charge decay, of a piezoelectric device.
