On the material properties and constitutive equations of piezoelectric poly vinylidene fluoride (PVD
The complex elastic and piezoelectric material properties of uniaxially orientedPVDF were measured over a temperature range of 20°C to 80°C and a frequency range of0.01 Hz to 100 Hz using specially developed equipment. A WLF Time-TemperatureSuperposition (TTS) expansion of the resulting data confirmed previously reportedthermorheologically simple (TRS) behavior for the elastic properties and established thatthe piezoelectric behavior is also TRS. The form of the piezoelectric TTS expansion
