Abstract

Abstract: Lead-free, high piezoelectric performance, Ba(Zr0.2Ti0.8)O3-0.5(Ba0.7Ca0.3)TiO3 (BZT-0.5BCT) sub-micron powders with perovskite structure were fabricated using the sol-gel process. A 0-3 type composite was obtained by choosing epoxy resin as matrix and BZT-0.5BCT, acetylene black as functional phases. Particular attention was paid to the damping behavior of composite with different content of BZT-0.5BCT powders, the influence of frequency and loading force on the damping properties were also analyzed. A mathematical model was developed to characterize the damping properties of the composites. It found that the piezoelectric effects and interfacial friction play a key role in damping behavior of composites, and a large dissipated loss factor of tanδ was found at the BZT-0.5BCT content of 20 vol %.
