Abstract
This paper describes the detection of an impact location by using anisotropy of the output voltage of a metal-core piezoelectric ceramic fiber/aluminum composite. Metal-core piezoelectric ceramic fibers are very fragile. The mechanical properties of metal-core piezoelectric ceramic fibers can be improved by embedding the fibers into the metals that have excellent reliability and strength. Therefore, metal-core piezoelectric ceramic fiber/aluminum composites were developed by using the Interphase Forming/Bonding method. Furthermore, the output voltage characteristics of fabricated a composite were evaluated, and the anisotropy of the output voltage was observed. In this study, the impact location detection system was developed by using the anisotropy of the output voltage of the composite. It is expected to reduce the number of sensors compared with conventional systems while maintaining the accuracy. As a result, the impact location detection was successfully developed by using the model of the output voltage of the composites that were disposed in two different positions to obtain the signals.
