Paper Abstract

The measurement of shear stresses in the hydrodynamic boundary layer required high sensitivity sensors. A floating element type sensor using the piezoelectric effect is proposed. It is constituted of a composite material with high shear stress sensitivity. The evolution of the sensor characteristics with the PZT volume fraction is analyzed. The experimental results show a good agreement with the Finite Element Modeling predictions.
