The nonlinear vibratory behavior of a smart material component, a 1-3 piezocerarniccomposite, is characterized. Dynamic experimental measurements of the I-3's mechanical response to harmonic electrical excitation over a range of excitation frequencies and mechanical loading conditions quantify the level of harmonic distortion in the device.
