Abstract

Macroscopic ferroelectric properties of piezoelectric polycrystals are strongly affected by microscopic inhomogeneous crystal structure. In our previous study, a multi-scale finite element method based on crystallographic homogenization method has been developed to estimate macroscopic properties considering microscopic crystal morphology. In this paper, the crystal orientation distribution of polycrystalline barium titanate has been measured by SEM·EBSD technique, and the measured crystal orientation distribution has been introduced to the microscopic finite element model. As the prediction of macroscopic properties depends on the sampling conditions of the measured crystal orientations, the effects of number of sampling points and sampling area have been investigated. As a result, the effective sampling conditions have been clarified to estimate macroscopic ferroelectric properties.
