This volume deals with the physics and electroelasticity relations of information transducers, i.e. sensors and actuators based on polar dielectrics and semiconductors. The issues are viewed in terms of solid state physics and fracture mechanics. The book contains methods for calculating electrical fields, currents, temperature, mechanical stress-strain state of piezoelectric devices, which are used in measurement equipment and automatic control systems.
The book proposes optimal micro-electromechanical and piezoelectronic devices on the basis of computer calculation and experimental data.
It will be particularly useful to engineers in electronics, automatics and computing, as well as undergraduates and graduates.

Notations and Common Abbreviations
Valentin M.Bogomol'ny, Ph.D. (1974) in Technical Physics, Moscow State University of Engineering Ecology, is Professor of Mechanical Engineering there. He has published 4 monographs in Russian and more than 60 papers in English for various academic journals.
We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
