Establishes uniform specifications for describing design and performance characteristics, acceptance and qualification test methods, and calibration techniques, and procedures for presenting test data for piezoelectric (including ferroelectric) pressure and sound-pressure transducers.Scope:This standard covers piezoelectric (including ferro-electric) pressure transducers and piezoelectric sound pressure transducers. Pressure and sound-pressure types could be the same instrument differing only in the method of calibration and manner of specifying performance. With the exception of certain impedance and charge measurements, this standard is also applicable to piezoelectric transducers with built-in amplifiers.Sound pressure transducers sense and measure the pressure oscillations within an elastic fluid medium experiencing stress-strain waves. When installed near the sound source or in the wall of a test object, the transducer behavior relates to its pressure response. When installed in a sound field, considerable interaction occurs at higher frequencies during the measuring transaction, changing the quantity being measured and relating transducer behavior to its free-field or diffuse-field response. Both aspects of transducer behavior are covered in this standard.Included among the specific types of piezoelectric pressure transducers to which this standard is applicable are the following:
