Paper Abstract

In the previous conference, we produced a new metal core-containing piezoelectric ceramics fiber by the hydrothermal method and extrusion method. The insertion of metal core is significant in view of its greater strength than ceramics materials, and electrodes are not required in the fiber's sensor and actuator applications. A new smart board was designed by mounting these piezoelectric fibers onto the surface of a CFRP composite. After that, this board is able to use this board to a sensor, actuator and vibration suppression. In this paper, we measured s mechanical properties of metal core piezoelectric fiber. We examined the tension test of a piezo-electric fiber, and measured the Young's modulus and breaking strength. Moreover, the expansion in the fiber unit was measured, and the displacement of the direction of d31 was measured. In addition, a piezo-electric fiber that used lead free material (BNT-BT-BKT) to correspond to environmental problems in recent years was made.
