- n. Plural form of piezoceramic.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Newly developed piezo injectors take advantage of the fact that piezoceramics change their crystal structure - and therefore their thickness - in a matter of nanoseconds (one nanosecond = one billionth of a second) when electrical voltage is applied.
The resulting pressure fluctuation is then converted into electrical energy by piezoceramics in the pressure chambers.
This produces a periodic pressure fluctuation in the feedback branches, which are coupled to piezoceramics.
