Impact of nonlinear piezoelectric constants on surface acoustic wave propagation on a piezoelectric substrate is investigated in this work. Propagation of acoustic wave propagation under uniform stress is analyzed; the wave equation is obtained by incorporating the applied uniform stress in the equation of motion and taking account of the set of linear and nonlinear piezoelectric constants. A new method of separation between the different modes of propagation is proposed regarding the

Detail calculations and simulations have made for Lithium Niobate (LiNbO3); transformations between modes of propagation, under uniform stress, have been found. These results leads to conclusion that nonlinear terms affect the acoustic wave propagation and also we can make controllable acoustic devices.
