The modulus and blocking force characteristics of multilayer ceramic actuators have been measured using a novel measurement method based on the computer-controlled application of continuous range of external loading stiffness constraints. The full blocking force graph may be deduced which exhibits substantial departure from the previously presumed linear measurements and calculations. This is useful design data for actuator designers and users.
