Abstract
A method to detect linear flaws in piezoelectric actuators is demonstrated. Piezoelectrically induced vibrations are excited in the actuator at a large number of closely spaced frequencies. At frequencies of mechanical resonance there are steep impedance peaks and a peak pattern is generated that is characteristic of a particular actuator configuration. It is shown that when the amplitudes of such peaks are abnormally low, i.e. 50% or less, or when there are peaks > 2kHz removed from 'normal' peak locations, significant internal flaws are present.
