Abstract: Longitudinal vibration mode is conveniently used for damage localization and detection in truss structure. However, a satisfactory piezoelectric impedance response due to longitudinal modes is not so easy to obtain in practical applications. The objective of this paper is to investigate how to obtain the impedance response of longitudinal modes with a piece of PZT transducer. In this case various vibration modes will be excited by unilaterally bonded PZT transducer, so the observation of longitudinal modes bec…
