The direct piezoelectric effect If a stress is

**applied**to certain crystals they developan electric moment whose magnitude is proportional to the

**applied**stress. This isknown as the direct piezoelectric effect. For example, if a uniaxial tensile stress ...

If we apply only one component of stress, say o-n, equations (1) imply that all the

strain components, not just eu, may be different from zero. It follows that, if a

rectangular block of crystal is loaded by a uniaxial tension
