Paper Abstract

Impulsive pressure applied on a thin plate coupled with fluid is measured bypiezoelectric disks. A pair of piezoelectric disks are put on the side of aplate in contact with fluid and the empty side. The outputs from each of thepiezoelectric disks are summed to cancel the effect of the plate-bendingdeformation. The summation of voltage histories is converted to impulsivepressure according to the calibration of the piezoelectric disk by thelongitudinal impact test. A generator of impulsive pressure is constructed toverify this method.
