Abstract : The design, development, calibration, and performance of a piezoelectric pressure transducer for aerodynamic pressure measurements in shock tubes is described in detail. The sensitive element (diameter--4mm; length--2mm), made of TsTS-19 ceramic, is said to be more sensitive than that made of barium titanate ceramic. The wave guide is made of L-59 brass which has an acoustic resistance close to that of ceramic of the sensitive element. A schematic view of the transducer is given. (Author)
